  • "2nd visit to this fantastic cottage."

    Big enough for 2 plus the dog. Helen and Paul were , as before very friendly , welcoming and helpful.

  • "Hosts were very friendly and helpful, and easily contactable if needed."

    Scones on arrival were very welcome after our journey too! The cottage is nicely decorated and clean, with a well equipped kitchen. The only disappointment was the shower room, which was very small.

    Thankyou David for your comments. Glad you enjoyed your stay and felt welcome. I appreciate your comment on our shower cubicle. It is definitely an aspect of the cottage we would love to alter but unfortunately as you can see it’s just not possible which is a shame …. Unless we knock into our property Property Owner

    Ideal for visiting surrounding areas. Very comfortable bed and sofa upstairs is a good idea .It was our 2nd time staying, garden has been improved since last visit and is now seperately fenced which makes it safer for those with dogs.

    Thankyou for your comments Helen . Very much appreciated. Glad you enjoyed your stay again. We continue to try to improve on little things where we can to enable our guests a more comfortable stay . Hope to see you again if you are in our area . Helen Property Owner

  • "Owners very welcoming."

    Cottage clean. Kitchen very well equipped. Unfortunately sofa uncomfortable to sit on and very low down. Bedroom very very hot. Couldn't sleep because of heat. Perhaps would benefit from a lighter duvet and a fan when hot weather. Dogs enjoyed garden but needed watching as big drop at one end of garden (might be OK for big dogs) and also owners didn't want dogs cleaning themselves in garden. Cottage sits on busy road. Possibly would return if some of the above issues were addressed.

    Thankyou Diane for your feedback. We are always interested in comments from guests , it helps us to improve in any way we can. I think it was a very warm spell when you were here . We do have a fan and an extra portable radiator for guests who need extra warmth or are too warm . They are kept in the bedroom cupboards along with alternative bedding if the quilt is too warm . I supply a sheet and a bed throw as a cooler option for the bed . Sorry I didn’t make this clear for you . It can be quite warm in the bedroom if the sun blind is left up. I’m not too sure about not wanting pets to clean themselves in the garden , probably this is regarding dogs having a poo on the lawn. Yes we do prefer this to be undertaken if possible on the lane at the back , but we’re not over strict on this . We just have to be considerate towards our none pet guests too. I hope this didn’t disrupt your routine too much . I must admit I also find the sofa fairly low , I’m assuming you mean the one in the lounge not in the bedroom…… we actually have recently had another one delivered but it was so uncomfortable we had to send it back , so it is work in progress . Thankyou once again for choosing us for your vacation. We would love to see you again if you are in our area . Best Wishes Helen Property Owner

    Everything you you could possibly need and more!Beautiful enclosed garden for our dog who loved exploring in the well established shrubbery. Comfortable bed what more could you want .Hosts were extremely welcoming and helpful. Only criticism was we found the sofa very low and uncomfortable. Many thanks!

    Thankyou for your feedback Caroline . Lovely comments Thankyou . So glad you enjoyed our property and the area to explore . As you may have read in a previous comment .. we did have a replacement settee delivered but it was so uncomfortable we had to send it back. I hope this didn’t spoil your holiday.

  • "This is a really good perfect holiday cottage if you want a home from home."

    It's very well equipped with everything you need from home entertainment with numerous paid TV channels, a selection of games, cards and puzzles and a kitchen that's stocked enough to prepare a family Christmas dinner! (Even though you wouldn't fit them in!) We stayed with our dog and it's a just right to access the local beaches and resorts. If you want a relaxing break close to the coast but away from the hustle and bustle then you won't go wrong. Finally the local pub provides fantastic food, it's dog friendly and they have doggy dinners which at £5 keeps the pooches very happy.

    Sorry I haven’t responded until now to your feed back . Somehow I missed it . Thankyou for taking the time to do so . Helen Property Owner

    If taking a dog, be aware that the garden is only enclosed on three sides; the fourth is a loose hedge with large gaps. Also the owners request that dogs do not use the garden for toileting, for the benefit of other guests without a dog.

    The cottage is small but cosy and very well furnished. The garden is a delight and fairly secure for dogs. The kitchen is fully equipped and a pleasure to cook in or the pub opposite is great and dog friendly if you want a night off. The welcome pack was lovely for humans and even better for the dog, in 20 years of self catering with pets I've never had toys and towels provided. Will certainly be back again

Lightning fast broadband (first time I have ever stayed in a cottage where the broadband is faster than at home!)
