Guest Book Comments

Fantastic location, beautiful cottage. Ideal for 2 adults, 2 kids and a dog! Lovely garden and clean cottage on arrival. We loved it there.

A trusted customer - 28th July 2018

A spacious, attractive, stylish dwelling, light and airy lounge/dining area. A very peaceful location. Lovely large mature garden and attractive wildflower meadow. Property smells fresh though could do with a spring clean in dusty corners. Beds - the mattresses are way too soft, there have been previous comments on this and it is high time the owner did something. Sofa is very low and unsupportive -also needs replacing for something more practical. No summer weight duvet for the single beds. Cheap and poor functioning tv is a let down. No information provided on local services such as doctors, hospital, dentist , vets, pharmacy, best pubs, etc. Said to be dog friendly, but there needs to be a fenced off enclosed area of garden where you could let your dog loose without the risk of it getting onto the road.
