Property was well situated with lots to do, but very isolated and quiet. Good standard. Nicely converted, in keeping and had comfy beds.

The cottage is the perfect place for a relaxing country holiday. The courtyard and outdoor seating area is a lovely place to relax and eat al fresco, and great for the children to play in view. Warm and cosy inside, with everything you could need for a perfect stay.

The cottage was absolutely lovely. The location was good if you wanted to get away from everything without being too far from the basics. The owner was extremely helpful and friendly. Perfect for our family.

Very well situated for visiting lots of interesting places, even though our visit was in November there was still such a lot open that was interesting. There was a lovely cosy log burner to come back to at night time and it was very peaceful, had a fabulous time.

The owner, who lives in the farm house, was very welcoming and gave us good advice about where to eat and local attractions. The cottage was warm and cosy with the lounge being particularly spacious. There was plenty of hot water and the cottage was spotless.

Het huis ligt afgelegen. Je moet een zandweg volgen (ong. 1 kilometer). Het is zeker de moeite waard, want het is er zeer rustig. 'S morgens zie fazanten, konijntjes, eekhoorntjes, hertjes en ik heb zelfs een wezel gezien. De keuken is voorzien van was en afwasmachine. Er is wifi en dat werkt heel goed. De eigenaar woont in het hoofdcomplex, net als zijn zoon. Mr. Edmunds heeft veel tips voor trips in de omgeving. Er is zeer veel te zien!
