  • "The cottage is functional and clean."

    Unfortunately a little small for us even though there was only the two of us and our dog. The garden is as seen with lots of parking but no lawn which our dog would have liked. Our fault as we should have realised. The cottage is in easy walking distance to four pubs all serving food, but not every night ,so you just have to check.

  • "It was beautifully presented and welcoming gift appreciated, along with milk, tea and coffee and sugar."

    One little very very minor detail. No salt and pepper pots.

  • "This was our first visit to Abbots Bromley, we thoroughly enjoyed the area which has numerous dog walks for Maggie our German Shepherd."

    Church View Cottage was perfect for our needs, it has more than enough space for two people and their pet. Upon arrival the property was spotlessly clean and we enjoyed the wine and biscuits and Maggie enjoyed her dog biscuits. The secure garden is very good for pet owners and the private off road parking is a bonus. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have now booked for another week next April 2023. Overall I cannot fault the area, the accommodation and the local people.

  • "This is a delightful little cottage, ideal for a couple and it's all on one level."

    The floors are tiled or wooden so easy to sweep and keep clean, especially if you have a dog. Lots of thought has been given to making this accommodation comfortable and welcoming and the bottle of wine, litre of milk, up-market biscuits and the provision of tea and coffee was much appreciated on arrival. There's a washing machine, lovely fridge-freezer but no dishwasher. The bed is not huge (4'6" or 5') and although there's a new mattress, it is quite soft; we are used to much firmer mattresses at home but that said we were in fact quite comfortable. There's lashings of hot water and the kitchen is very well equipped. We so appreciated the provision of a folder of information - especially the 4 local walks we could do around the village. It's a lovely place, architecturally very pleasing but with only one tiny local shop at one end of it, so no supermarket anywhere nearby.

    The accommodation is situated in a quiet lane in Abbots Bromley. The owners supply bedding, towels ( even one for the dog). When we arrived there was milk in the fridge and a lovely box of biscuits for the humans and some for the dog. There was also a supply of tea, coffee and sugar. The bed was a bit soft but apart from that everything was spotlessly clean providing the guests with lovely place to stay. Thank you.

    Nice evening sun on the patio. Two points for dog owners - the gap under the outer gate was large enough for our Airedale terrier to get under, and the lounge door did not close securely so she could push her way through.

  • "Modern interior but retaining that country village charm."

    We met the owners who were very friendly. The villagers made us welcome. The property was safe for our dog. The welcome touch of biscuits both human and canine was nice. Central location for town and country. We visited the Bagot Arms which we would thoroughly recommend for both food and welcome from Lisa and Dave, the Goat wasn’t serving food at the time but welcoming. We ordered takeaway from infinitii Indian restaurant and would recommend. Cobwebs cafe have homemade cake to die for. All in all we will return. Only negative was the mattress was too soft for our taste.

    We had everything we needed and some of the extra touches were nice.

  • "Lovely peaceful cottage, with the perfect little patio area."

    We spent bank holiday weekend here as a couple to have some quality time away from the kids & that's exactly what we got. Perfect location for exploring Staffordshire & the Peak District. The cottage was well equipped, exceptionally clean & the added bonus of hand sanitiser/wipes, tea, coffee, milk & biscuits. Locally in the village there are a few pubs serving good food, in particular 'The Crown', not only was the food absolutely delicious but the staff were really friendly too. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay & would definitely book again if we get the chance.

    It was clean and tidy and we liked the little extras - flowers, biscuits and what you need these days - hand sanitiser. There are some lovely walks from the cottage or going a little further away, by the reservoir. It was nice to come back and relax on the patio in the evening with a cold drink and good book.

    The cottage was beautifully presented and super clean. We were welcomed with fresh milk in the fridge, biscuits to nibble on, fresh flowers to enjoy, as well as treats for our dog and antiviral hand wipes and sanitiser left to keep us safe. The weather was great when we arrived, so we enjoyed a bbq and drinks in the beautifully enclosed garden. The village was so pretty and well kept and we enjoyed a few local walks. The cottage was so quiet and peaceful; exactly what we wanted!
