The cottage was immaculate and was in a lovely location, with everything you could possibly need. There are so many places to go and visit and we love the combination of hill and coastal walks, so this was perfect for us. The hot tub in the garden was an excellent bonus to come back to each day! The surrounding villages were lovely to explore with some great places to eat - and shop! We had a great time and would definitely recommend to others. We will be back!

A lovely cottage in a very nice area, it was quiet and relaxing. It was a chance to get away and enjoy our time as a couple. The hot tub was a wonderful way to relax after a long day out.

It was a fantastic cottage and location! The owners were lovely and very helpful and the Hot Tub was a nice finishing touch to the cottage. It was dog friendly with loads of local walks, great if you didn't fancy driving. It was a very nice, quiet getaway and we will definitely be back again! Thanks for a great stay.

The property was as described; clean and tidy and of an excellent quality. The hot tub is recommended for any time of the year. The on site people were very helpful.

We paticularly like the personal hot tub in the garden with a comfortable sofa and armchair in lounge. The kitchen was well equipped so you can actually cook a proper meal with a really good fan oven.

A perfect relaxing retreat to shut the world out and enjoy the surroundings. We will definitely return.
Mr Wilson

Everything was well maintained, in excellent condition. The site itself was very clean and tidy. The owner was very helpful, with local information of places to go to eat and what places welcomed dogs. A lot of hard work has gone into the cottages and the up keep of them. The hot tub was brilliant, very clean and it was good to know that the water was changed for each new holiday maker, the water was checked every day to make sure it was at the correct hygiene level. Would definitely recommend.

The cottage was lovely and the hot tub not overlooked. Had own private garden for kids to play so not encroaching on other peoples holidays. The owner introduced himself and was very friendly, and if you had any queries he was all too willing to help. The owners have really put a lot of thought into making our stay as pleasant and stress free as possible.
Mr Pearson

The Cottage was private and quiet, with no passing traffic. There was a pleasant outlook from the garden area and there was an adequate private garden area to relax and enjoy the weather. The covered hot hub was excellent to relax in, in the evening and the cottage was nicely furnished and relaxing.

We enjoyed our stay in October here. The countryside is wonderful. The hot tub eased our old bones and inside was comfortable and warm.

This is a beautifully clean and well equipped cottage, we loved the wetroom with its underfloor heating and the recliner chairs in the lounge. We had a problem with the DVD player and this was immediately rectified when the owner was informed, he bought us a replacement. Outside there is a barbeque and a picnic table and the garden was plenty big enough for our son to enjoy running around in. The Hot tub was lovely although we were slightly disappointed when we were informed that we could not use it after 8pm on the Thursday night because it is drained and cleaned for the new occupants. It has always been part of our holiday to have a soak before bed time. The beds are very comfortable and we always slept well, the only gripe I had was that the mirror in the bedroom needed to be moved because it was too far away from the plug socket so made styling my hair difficult. On the whole though, i would highly recommend staying here. This is a lovely peaceful holiday cottage, the area is fabulous for families with kids, there is a lot to do, lots of family friendly attractions, nice pubs serving good food, real ales and beer gardens with play equipment and beautiful countryside. We had a lovely stay and we didn't want to leave.

This was a wonderful accommodation. Loved the heated flooring in the wet room. Home from home. The hot tub was an additional bonus. The site is well planned out providing privacy to each visiting party. There are multitudes of things to do during the day in the surrounding areas, from walks, castles, historic villages, beaches and other places of interest.
