Charming cottage in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is perfect, we stayed a week but wished it was longer. The location enabled us to explore several villages and small country towns in the region, and we got a bit of walking in too.

There was no highlight because it was all brilliant.

Lovely cottage but a couple of things lacking.

  • 3 of 5

This is a really nice little cottage in a beautiful area but there were a couple of small niggles. We were met at the cottage by Ann but there was no real customer service shown as rather than asking how our journey had been or saying she hoped we had a lovely stay the only thing she really said was that we would need to leave by 10am on the Sunday. When we got inside the cottage it was very nicely decorated and had clearly been done to a very good standard. The kitchen is a little lacking in utensils and cutlery as there were no wooden spoons or fish slices and only four knives, forks and spoons plus 2 teaspoons which considering the cottage sleeps 4 is really only just adequate. The bedrooms are lovely and the bed comfortable. The biggest issue was the heating as it was quite cold when we went but the heating only seemed to come on for a very short period of time in the evening and rather than information on how to put the heating on override there was a slightly stern note on the heating control telling you how to change the temperature but that you must NOT press the other buttons (which I presume are the override buttons). Overall we did enjoy our stay and these issues are quite minor but would have made a big difference.

Owner's Response: Sorry there was a heating problem David, but when i went to prepare the cottage for our next guest on the day of your departure i could see there clearly was a problem with the heating which meant we needed a plumber to look at the boiler, a simple phone call to us would have meant this could have been done while you were there, we only live 2 minutes away and always do our our best if any problems arise for our guests.

Lovely place for a quiet break

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed for a weekend and it was lovely. The cottage was very clean, well maintained with modern kitchen facilities. The cottage is in a picturesque village in quiet surroundings, for us a perfect escape from the city. The handing over of keys was made very easy by Mrs Gould. I would highly recommend a stay in this cottage.

Superb. A real home from home

  • 5 of 5

A charming barn conversion. Warm and well equipped kitchen had everything we needed for staying over at Christmas. There were even a few fairy lights and a wooden xmas tree set up. Would definitely stay again.
