Guestbook comments from the manager

The Cottage was immaculate, very homely, warm and the log fire was brilliant. Couldn't fault any thing, the milk in the fridge, tea coffee and sugar basket and the vase of flowers were a very nice thoughtful touch!

North cottage

  • 5 of 5

The facilities in the cottage were second to none, nothing was forgotten, perfect for our very large dog. we walked for miles in the unspoilt countryside, views of hills, lambs, pheasants and not a street lamp in site!!! This was the most beautiful, country retreat we have ever found and Jo was really helpful. Have been recommending to all our friends and family....
