    It is well-positioned and we were able to visit somewhere different and interesting every day during our week's stay. Good pub serving meals nearby. We have no hesitation in recommending Red Robin, we would definitely stay here if we wanted to return to the area in the future.

  • "Lovely stay."

    Very peaceful. The patio is a real sun trap so you can easily enjoy a meal in the garden when the sun is out. Kitchen is well stocked with utensils etc. Bathrooms are lovely and the underfloor heating makes it even better. There is only one way to improve this property and that would be a hot tub!

  • "We had a lovely time in Red Robin."

    It was warm, comfortable and had everything we needed. So lovely to be able to take 3 dogs as well. I had an issue with a blind that was replied to very swiftly. The only thing I can think of that could possible make it better for dog owners is to have the whole area fenced, the area under the hedge is not and we hadn’t noticed and our dogs got out. We kept an eye on them after that! Other than that the cottage was fabulous and would recommend to anyone. Thank you for a lovely stay.

    Thank you for bringing this to my attention. The whole of the garden area has now been fenced and is fully secure for dogs. Thank you for your feedback Janice Property Owner

  • "This was our second stay at Red Robin and I am sure it won’t be our last."

    The home is very comfortable and well equipped with a good supply of essentials and cleaning materials. Staying over New Year we appreciated the Christmas touches and it was nice to have a good selection of games, books and dvd’s. Our only suggestions would be to supply a couple of smaller saucepans and replace the non stick frying pan.

    Thank you for your feedback - I have added 2 new small saucepans to Red Robin Janice Property Owner
