"Super cottage- we were happy there as we were walking and swimming the back door access to the bathroom was very useful. Thank you for all prior information a very pleasant place to stay. Lots of parking especially at the back of the house."

"It is a wonderful typically English and very beautiful and lovingly decorated house. The hosts are super nice! There was even a welcome cake and it was decorated for Christmas. We are (family with two children) super happy including our little dog! We definitely want to come back.
Thank you for the friendly decoration and the great facilities. We felt very comfortable. The tea and the loving furnishings are a big plus!"
