Beautifully presented in a wonderfully peaceful location

  • 4 of 5

A lovely cottage in a peaceful location with easy access to the main routes. The arrival hamper was a wonderful surprise and greatly appreciated after our longer than anticipated journey time caused by a number of accidents. The cottage was beautifully presented and contained everything we needed and more. We did experience the WiFi dropping out several times and accepted this might have been as a result of being in a rural location. Overall perfect for a base from which to explore the area

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very positive review. We do try to "go the extra mile" to ensure that our guests have a holiday to remember. We are sorry about the WiFi- it has been an issue with BT since it was installed in 2009. In spite of a new hub and many engineers visits- it is due to our rural location , and at present is something we have learned to live with. We hope it did nit cause too much inconvenience. Again, thanks for your review.
