  • "We loved the cottage, a couple of helpful hints: it would be nice to have some more local area info, eg walks."

    There were not any dishwasher tablets.

  • "The accommodation was very spacious and comfortable;however,those with mobility problems would find the steps to the ground floor bedroom difficult."

    We were most concerned to discover that the "farm processing plant" is referred to as a slaughterhouse on the internet.Also,employees at this "plant"would arrive shortly after 5am, and 6am saw the arrival of a number of large lorries-hardly conducive to a peaceful and relaxing holiday being woken each morning by this traffic!

  • "It is a very spacious and homely cottage in a beautiful spot, situated within a short walk to local shop, pub and rail station."

    The cottage was well equipped and comfortable. We were fortunate enough to be able to spend most of our time lounging outside on the large decking and made use of the bbq provided (charcoal required). The open plan kitchen/dining area is ideal for families/groups but we were a little surprised on arrival to find that the bin and dishwasher hadn’t been emptied. We were unable to find the grill pan in either oven. Fans for the upstairs bedrooms would’ve been a welcome addition during the hot weather. There is an animal disposal facility at the end of the lane and although the trucks do pass the house quite early in the morning and there was an occasional unpleasant smell, this was infrequent and certainly didn’t spoil our holiday. A minor issue with a smoke alarm was rectified promptly. Thank you. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in this very pleasant cottage. Thank you
