  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our break in this property."

    Beautiful and plush. Could not find fault. Hoping that the property remains the same for years to come. Sat upstairs and watched the sunsets. Would be nice to have a TV upstairs too. The walks from the property are relaxing, no real need to get in the car unless going further afield. It was disappointing not being able to walk around the Marina but understand why, you can only go to the Cafe. We viewed the Marina from the other side of the canal on one of the walks. Thank you to Lou and Team at the Marina. All the rental properties look gorgeous.

  • "Absolutely wonderful stay and the premise offered all that we hoped for."

    One very small negative point, in all 3 shower rooms there was no power socket facility for electric shavers. Other than that, everything else was excellent and the little extra gifts left for us on our arrival was very thoughtful and appreciated. 4.75 Star rating overall. We will recommend this cottage to all our friends and relatives.

  • "Excellent accommodation and facilities, we were hoping to christen the beautiful new BBQ, but didn’t get around to it as the food opportunities around the local towns gave us the chance to relax and not worry about cooking, and cleaning up."

    The dishwasher and washing machine are brilliant as are the showers. Thanks for the personalised welcome note, and the biscuits were lovely. The marina cafè provided a great breakfast too.

  • "Lovely welcoming accommodation."

    Owners were very friendly and helpful providing information on accommodation location and the local area. We really enjoyed our stay. The kids loved that there were games available for them to play. I was amazed at how well equipped the kitchen was (scales, bowls, large freezer as well as the fridge and a coffee maker!). The washing machine and tumble drier were also welcome additions. Beautifully designed and laid out. I could quite happily live in a place like that!
