Pleasant little cottage in a beautiful location
Stayed here for 2 nights with my husband and dogs. We only really used the place to sleep the rest of our holiday was walking and seeing the surrounding countryside. It was just right for that type of holiday.
Cozy cottage in the heart of the Midlands
Simon answered all our questions promptly adding to the pleasure of our stay.
Exactly as shown
The cottage is cute and exactly what was expected. We highly enjoyed our escape from London.
A cosy cottage with all the essentials needed for a short stay. Oven a little tricky to use. The bed was fantastic - really comfortable. Recommend shower curtain replaced with a fixed shower screen. Would definitely recommend staying and will look to re-book for another stay as soon as diary permits!!
Lovely Little Cottage
Comfortable, compact cottage. A little snag with getting access to the keys but we contacted Simon and he sorted it out right away. Our phone (Three) didn't work unless we stood out at the road but we did have good WiFi in the cottage. Two great pubs in town. Nice to walk just across the road to the Mill Wheel or a couple of blocks to the Bull's Head.
