Guest Book Comments

Lovely small, clean and welcoming cottage situated at the bottom of the owners garden. We felt it was a little too small for four adults, especially around the dining table and the living room furniture was not very comfortable. Bedrooms however had very comfortable beds and lots of space.

Thank you for your review, we will pass your recommendations onto the owners, the cottage is in a lovely rural setting right on the waterside and perfect for a relaxing break.

Lovely, very peaceful and in a beautiful location. The cottage was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The owners were friendly and provided tea, coffee and milk and a bottle of wine in the fridge, lovely start to our holiday.
