"It is truly a beautiful little cottage, finished to such a high standard, the owner is so welcoming and helpful. We have stayed in both of these cottages now and will be returning again. The small attention to detail is what makes this a perfect holiday retreat. Thank you David!"

Mrs S Biddle

"The cottage was exactly how we imagined and what we saw in the picture. The details and the decor made us feel right at home. David was there to meet us, we already felt like we knew him. We wanted a few nights away form the bustle and crazy work schedule in London, we wanted somewhere quiet and full of greenery which is exactly what we got! The cottage was clean and so cosy. Thank you so much David and we shall be recommending this place to everyone!"


"We had a fantastic couple of days at 1 West Cottage and we want to come back again in the Autumn. Dave is an excellent host as his local knowledge and recommendations were perfect! We couldn't rate the whole stay any higher!"
