Bumblebee Cottage is a very attractive property in a lovely location. All the furnishings were very comfortable and the rooms were spacious yet cosy. The back garden is amazing; with newly planted terraces down to the shallow river and beautiful views beyond. There is a large decked area with three sets of double doors opening to the garden. Everything is new and in excellent condition. Loads of games, books and tourist information to browse. It was perfect also for our dog. Would have no hesitation recommending the cottage to friends and family.

Bumblebee Cottage is an outstanding holiday home-from-home. Perfect size and location, with great local information and thoughtful touches throughout. We hope to return and we would not hesitate to recommend it.

The cottage was extremely spacious and well equipped, set in the most beautiful surroundings. The stream at the bottom of the garden was a big hit with our children and dog! The beds were comfortable and everything we could possibly need was provided, including a great selection of books, games and DVDs for rainy days! We hope to return again soon.
