  • "Fantastic accommodation in a perfect location."

    Had everything we needed. (Even the takeaway delivery menus). Great quality mattress and down duvet and pillows (very much appreciated) in the double bedroom. Tastefully decorated and so a lovely space to hideaway in. Small but perfectly snug. The kids loved the bunk beds (aged 10 and 12) but probably not large enough for any children over this age. Thankyou!

  • "Very comfortable cottage with a charming patio, excellent standard of furnishings and equipment, and all beautifully decorated."

    Would recommend it and would stay there again. We did struggle to find Harriet’s Cottage and What3Words would have been very helpful!
