A good location in beautiful countryside..

  • 4 of 5

The decor reflected the property surroundings and the cottage was suitably equipped for our needs. The cottage boasted stunning views and a warm and cosy atmosphere. As suggested by the property owner in their guide book. We enjoyed a walk by the canal in Denham. The Hollybush very welcoming and friendly, serving traditional pub grub. Great walks out from the Ramblers Retreat, near Alton, lovely afternoon tea. Evening meal at the Travellers Rest in Stanley. Fish Pie was nice and a good selection of meals on the menu. We would certainly visit again.

Comfortable and welcoming property

  • 5 of 5

Well furnished with everything needed for a great stay and very warm even when waking up to a snowy morning - upside down layout of the cottage with the lounge upstairs makes the most of the beautiful views across the countryside - highly recommended

Pretty cottage but ....

  • 3 of 5

..... not really suitable for pets as steep stairs with no grips (meaning we had to carry 4 stone dog to and fro) Garden area is not a garden and involves navigating farm gates .... only 3ft fencing and unsecured stable block and hay barn with hazards for dogs .... so overall not exactly the stress free break we were hoping for at all sadly. Lovely for anyone without pets or small children though.

Would stay again!

Beautiful cottage for a relaxing break. The weather wasn’t too great so we couldn’t make use of the garden, which was a real shame as the countryside views were lovely. Would stay again.
