Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. A lovely old lodge keepers house in an idyllic countryside setting, but not too far from civilization. Sept 2011.
  2. Delightful cottage in a peaceful and lovely setting. Excellent base for walking and touring. Well-equipped. Pity the shower was a hand-held one with dodgy thermostatic control. July 2011.
  3. Lovely, quiet cottage, well equipped and very comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and had lovely walks in the local vacinity, like being in France with local fresh produce and sunshine! We would love to go back again soon. May 2011.
  4. The cottage is comfortable & roomy, although a tall, possibly bulky, person would not be comfortable in the bedrooms, because of the sloping ceilings. It’s a great place to take dogs, with a secure garden & lovely walks on tne estate through a gate out of the garden. The central heating is effective, & the log fire superb, with a lavish supply of free logs. The crockery shows distinct signs of wear, & some is unusable, and there are no pegs for coats, etc, except a very few in the utility room. We would visit again, both for the charming cottage, & for the delights of the area. April 2011.
  5. Warm cosy cottage away from main road. Jan 2011.
  6. The property was suitable for the number of people it accommodates. The kitchen was large and well equipped. The use of dishwasher, washing machine and dryer was a bonus as the weather was damp. The living room was cosy and the open fire was lovely as the logs and kindling were included in the price. There was a lovely feel to the cottage. In fact it is the only holiday cottage we have been to more than once and we will book to go there again. The walks around the cottage were also great, especially the ones that could be accessed through the back gate. Dec 2010.
  7. Very comfortable and clean. Oct 2010.
  8. Particularly liked the rural location and access to the estate walks. Aug 2010.
  9. Good facilities, clean and excellent location. June 2010.
  10. A delightful period gatehoouse to a country estate with roses round the door and a glorious view along the valley, Mansell Lodge is delightfully presented and very comfortable. We wished we could have stayed longer. June 2010.
  11. Loved the seclusion and peace of the property and having the beautiful fields behind the cottage to ourselves. Very warm and cosy, not large but plenty of room enough for us, our two grown up sons and our beardie dog, Harry. Excellent location for access to many lovely hikes/walks and visits to interesting places. April 2010.
  12. It’s a wonderfully romantic country retreat. A small and lovely cottage set on a hillside by itself with sheep and birds providing the only background sounds to a lovely, rural retreat. April 2010.
  13. Comfortable, cosy and pretty with an excellent supply of wood for the open fire. Feb 2010.
  14. The property was perfect, and ideal for what we were after. Feb 2010.
  15. Well decorated nice & tidy well equipped. Jan 2010.
  16. The cottage is perfectly cosy and in a beautiful location. Nov 2009.
  17. The accommodation was cosy and comfortable and, most importantly, spotlessly clean. Nov 2009.
  18. We liked the fact that it was secure for the dog and detatched. We also liked the location and the views. Oct 2009.
  19. Location, surroundings access to attractions in the area Pleasantly furnished and well equipped. Oct 2009.
  20. Kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms very nice but lounge furniture could do with updating. Sept 2009.
