Absolutely lovely, couldn't have asked for a better weekend. Me and my partner have had a brilliant few days at the long house cottage and would superbly recommend to anyone whom would ask about it. All in all, a beautiful, picturesque, warm little cottage out in the country.

The house was lovely and in a great area with good walks. We liked the fire and how it had a nice homely feel with all the board games and sweet decorations. The kitchen was stocked very well allowing us to make various things. On arrival we really appreciated the friendly owners. We had a lovely stay and would definitely recommend this cottage to friends.

The perfect romantic retreat. The picturesque cottage was idyllic, tucked away down a small lane in a rural setting. We had a fabulous holiday. The cottage was everything we had wished for and more. The cottage was charming, well equipped, warm and cosy. Would highly recommend.

The situation of the cottage was lovely and tranquil. Our hosts were very welcoming. The interior of the 500 year old cottage was superb and you would not want for anything; it was very comfortable and relaxing. The Alpacas were great to see from the garden as was the various wildlife we saw and heard. All in all our rating for our holiday and accommodation was 5 star because that was what it deserved.

A superb welcome upon arrival; the cottage was inspirational . Little extra touches made it that bit more special than your average cottage. The owners were friendly and approachable, and made sure we needed for nothing. The bedding and towels were of exceptional quality. The overall experience was 5 star; we cannot wait to return.

On arrival we couldn't find the owner to obtain keys for access, we called 2 phone numbers before someone came out. I was informed that the key was in the door at the rear of the property, and received a half hearted handshake as he was turning away (not the best first impression). On entering the cottage there was a damp and musty smell. We also found the mattresses on the bed to be of poor quality. The following morning it became apparent that there were cockroaches in the kitchen area. Whilst on first impressions the property was as described (chocolate box) these issues took the shine off our stay resulting in us leaving 2 days early.
