  • "What a beautiful, relaxing, welcoming place."

    It has been well thought out and well laid out. It’s nice that the hot tub is secluded and secure so your dog is save while you relax in the tub. Nice touch with the games,books and dvds. Very quiet on a night which we loved. Lovely pizza take away close by and great pub. Lovely to meet the family. Look forward to returning.

  • "We had a lovely stay at The White House - the property is very well equipped, with everything you’ll need for a comfortable few days away."

    It was lovely and warm, the kitchen had all the essentials, and the bed and bathroom were all great. The bottle of wine and biscuits were a lovely touch too! We took our spaniel, who had the run of a private yard - and enjoyed the complimentary dog treats very much! The hot tub was absolutely superb, in its own enclosed, secure area with easy access from the property - just a short hop across the private yard. It was very clean, warm and a perfect way to relax throughout the day. We made use of it at least twice a day and could have spent longer! There are a few walks straight out of the door which are handy for other dog owners. The village is very quiet and relaxed. We had a great time and can’t wait to plan another trip in future!

It benefits from being in easy walking distance to a very (dog) friendly pub, where food is served Thursday to Sunday. Some lovely Market towns close by to explore and close enough to the sea for walks along the beach. The hot tub made for a relaxing end to the day. Thanks for your hospitality!

    What a hidden gem this is. A cozy, warm cottage that had everything we needed nestled in a fantastic village. We arrived to find a welcoming home complete with Christmas tree, wine and mince pies. A very nice touch. We ventured to the local "Robin Hood" on the 1st night and were greeted with a warm welcome from both the owners/staff and also all of the locals. We had great food too. On Christmas Eve we chilled and relaxed in the cottage and took a dog walk around the beautiful village before returning to the pub again where our well behaved dog was made most welcome, once again enjoying great food and a welcoming atmosphere from a great community of people. We enjoyed another 2 nights in Middleton and much of the same with a trip into Beverly in-between. All in all, we had a fantastic break away and I look forward to returning again in the not too distant future. The owners have made a cracking job of their rental and I would highly recommend for anyone looking to kick back, relax but still have home comforts. We couldn't find fault. Thank you for our stay - greatly appreciated.

  • "The listing said something about the property all being on one level (the first floor); however, you need to know that there is step down into the living/kitchen area."

    This will not be a problem to most of you but if you are disabled it's something to think about. It is 'just one more step' to a 'normal' person, but being newly disabled myself, I found this step extremely difficult as you also need to duck to avoid the low door frame. Aswell as the step, the kitchen area is very small and not user friendly for anyone who can't easily turn and twist. I don't want the review to be completely negative, because the cottage is lovely, as is the hottub.
