      Fantastic service and kept me up to date every step of the way. Would definitely recommend to others Stayed at Hill House with 17 of my friends and family for my Hen weekend. The property is absolutely amazing. Clean and tidy and we’ll maintained. Facilities fabulous including lots of extras in the kitchen you wouldn’t normally expect. Would definitely recommend a stay for a large party in this property

      Although the property was exactly what we wanted, we found that Mulberry were very efficient when it came to collecting money but reactive rather than proactive when we required information. The property was excellent as was Bobby the owner. There were a number of maintenance items that needed attention and the area around the hot tub was in need of a good clean. We also found the hot water in the taps to be dangerously hot (The owner was informed)

      Slick and responsive service Wow what a truly fab house. There were 15 of us (age 9 to 79) and one dog, and the house never felt crowded. The kids really loved the hot tub and cinema room. The dining room is stunning; and the kitchen very very nice. I don’t know what we’re going to do next year as this set a standard that can’t be beaten. Having so many bedrooms at ground level worked really well for us. The true test is would we go back and would we recommend it? The answer is yes to both.

      Mulberry Cottages were very helpful in the lead up to our visit. If we had any questions they’d immediately contact the owner and get back to you quickly - they were very responsive, both through email and on the phone. Lovely staff and service! I will definitely be booking through Mulberry Cottages in the future. We recently stayed at Hill House for a hen weekend - it was beautiful! We happened to meet the owner when we were there and she was absolutely lovely - she’d even left home-made cake, local ales and cheese for us to have. The house is absolutely stunning - especially the dining area where we spent most of our time. It’s in a lovely rural location with plenty of outdoor space. We loved every second at Hill House!

      A lovely cottage in a pretty good location with easy to follow directions. A lovely gift of scrummy cake and local cheese awaited us. A beautiful home from home which we would have given 5 stars had it not been too cold for Early December when we visited. It would have been better if the large doors to the dining room fitted so daylight could not be seen through them. Highly recommend for summer and we would be happy to return in warmer weather. The sitting room was very comfortable as we were able to bring it up to a normal temperature. Perfect in every aspect but all but sitting room too cold for winter.

      Personable, helpful - but on one occasion felt the person I spoke to was short of time for my queries. Fabulous house and very friendly, helpful owner.

      Always quick to help with any questions leading up to our stay Just returned from an amazing week at Hill House. So many fantastic memories made with the whole family, it was great for us all to meet up and spend time together here. We loved the hot tub, & the cinema room is fab! We had a great time playing games on the lawn. The owners were always a quick call or text away & nothing was too much trouble for them, they helped resolve a small issue very quickly, excellent service. The welcome gifts of homemade cake & locally produced cheese & cider were a pleasant surprise & enjoyed by all. Can’t recommend this property enough & would love to go back ourselves too Thanks Emma

      Contacted Mulberry cottages a few times and was dealt with in a professional and friendly way each time. Website is and e-mail communication is also good. I would definitely use recommend them. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hill House, it was a perfect place for a fun and relaxing family holiday. The facilities were excellent and the setting was beautiful. The only thing I feel needs to be clarified on the website is that there are a couple of steps from the dining room into the kitchen which were an issue for our party. All the bedrooms are spacious and the atrium with large hot-tub is stunning. The owner was really helpful and accommodating of our needs, the welcome gifts of local produce was unexpected but very much enjoyed. The garden was excellent for family games, luckily we also had fantastic weather! I would have preferred the garden to be better fenced as we also took our dogs on holiday, but this didn’t affect our enjoyment of it. The cinema room was a firm favourite with the teenagers. I would recommend this property as it has everything needed for a great family holiday . Thanks!
