"We have just returned from holiday in Vale Cottage in Stanford in the Vale. A picture perfect thatched cottage that was so thoughtfully and tastefully decorated throughout. We enjoyed lazy days both inside and out with much to amuse the children. The view across the green to the church was quintessentially English and seeing the bride arriving in a tastefully decorated VW camper van was the icing on the cake! We highly recommend this sweet and spacious cottage."
