  • "We have just arrived back home from a weeks holiday at Waggoner’s cottage."

    What a really lovely time we had there. The cottage is beautiful, spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable, bathroom superb with wonderful fluffy white towels, the beds were so comfortable with beautiful good quality white Cotton bedding. A lot of care, and good taste is evident in this cottage. The owners are extremely helpful and approachable, nothing is to much trouble for them. The gardens outside the cottage are absolutely beautiful, with a very large area at the bottom where you can play games, we took our 4yr old grandson who loved playing there. I unreservedly recommend Waggoner’s cottage and feel sure we will be returning.
