    We were three couples, very old friends, and we found River Cottage extremely comfortable and perfect for our short stay. We had a few niggles. It would have helped with the catering had we been told that we would find milk, bread (delicious incidentally) butter etc waiting for us, plenty of soap, loo rolls. When I phoned you the day before to ask what would be there in the house I was given the vaguest answer. the girl obviously didn’t know. We would have liked a larger teapot and a full complement of mugs. Some hooks eg in the hall for coats etc. The cupboard under the stairs inadequate for six. The Golf Course was a joke, the grass being so long, but we had a good laugh! Again, it would had been helpful to know there were golf clubs under the stairs. Immediate problems with two of the loos which wouldn’t flush properly but this dealt iwith on site by the extremely helpful assistant Manager of Athelhampton. Apart from all the above minor things, it is very well furnished and equipped.

    The whole process of the rental was very efficient and the best process I have come across with regard to holiday rentals. The accommodation was beautiful in a wonderful location and extremely comfortable. We all had a really enjoyable time and the accommodation was the icing on the cake. A really lovely location, very comfortable cottage and the property felt more like a home in terms of the quality of the bedding, furniture etc. Would highly recommend it.

    Beautiful cottage in a peaceful location. Cottage was very clean and contained everything we needed. Ideal if like us you’re attending a wedding in the adjoining main house. Excellent! Great value for money for an extended weekend stay.

    Second time we have used Mulberry and once again we have found the service to be excellent. Our second time at River Cottage. Such a beautiful cottage - it really ticks all the boxes for comfort, seclusion, relaxation and sheer enjoyment. We love Athelhampton House and their staff were so friendly and helpful. Please don’t change anything this is a perfect holiday cottage.

    Your service was excellent as ever but the cottage somewhat lacking in charm River Cottage - ideal for three couples to stay over after a wedding at the adjacent Athelhampton House. It’s hard to find 3 en suite rooms in a cottage. The downstairs bedroom would appear to be a converted dining room as there is a wood stove behind the wardrobe and smell of soot. The upstairs bed and bathrooms are fine and attractively decorated. However for a 5 night holiday The living room is small for 6people but there is a good TV (Essential in Wimbledon finals week). The kitchen appears to be a modern extension and is very functional and equipped for serious cooking. The table and chairs however are a tight fit and we were only 4 guests. The garden is secure for a dog. The house and gardens are Beautiful and a visit is included. The promised riverside walk is overgrown and closed. The river itself is very overgrown and no longer suitable for fishing. The shop manager was very kind and helpful in a medical emergency.

    Everything was easy from the booking through to arrival and departure. The cottage was as described and was very well equipment and nicely decorated for Christmas It was a very comfortable cottage in a lovely location with everything needed for a family of 6 and 2 dogs. Little touches such as there being dishwasher tablets and plenty of crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils was appreciated over Christmas as was the lounge being decorated for Christmas

    Perfect location, loved the golf course. Was smaller than I was expecting particularly the living room and dining area. The back stairs were a little awkward as they were steep and narrow.

    Excellent service. This was our first booking with Mulberry Cottages and we were very impressed with the whole process. Will definitely use them again and have recommended them to friends and family. Absolutely charming cottage in a fabulous location. We loved every minute of our family holiday and used the golf course every day. The staff at Athelhampton House were so friendly and helpful. Would thoroughly recommend.
