"I booked this property for a girls weekend, and was so happy with it. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, there are plenty of bathrooms for a big group. It's all nicely decorated and furnished and the living room is a lovely social space. The outside area was lovely as well, although we stayed in November so didn't use the garden, but a few of the braver girls used the hot tub! We found everything we needed in the kitchen, plenty of plates, glasses, dishes, utensils, dishwasher tablets etc, and Steve had very thoughtfully got us some essentials.If anyone is taking young children there is plenty of plates and cups for little ones and plenty of toys and dvds in the property as well.I was so happy with the stay, I can't recommend it highly enough"

May 2013

"The cottage was beautiful, the pictures don't do it justice. We arrived to find it fully equipped including some fresh local produce and supplies such as tea, coffee and a bottle of wine which was a lovely touch. The cottage had clearly just been renovated and the attention to detail was gorgeous. We rented the cottage for a large group and we still felt as though we weren't on top of each all the time. The owner was very welcoming when we arrived and we didn't really want to leave when it came to the end of our stay. We will definitely be returning and can't recommend it enough."
