Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The photos don’t do this lovely cottage justice. Kids loved the outdoor pool. May 2012.
  2. Extremely peaceful location and well equipped cottage. April 2012.
  3. A lovely setting, close enough to Newbury for shopping, racing and easy to find from the main road, a bit scary driving in the dark! Beautifully appointed, had everything we needed, wish we could have stayed longer and will return. Nov 2011.
  4. Very nice cottage in a peaceful location, but close to all the main towns of Newbury, Reading, Winchester. Children loved watching the animals and getting the chance to go and feed them. Oct 2011.

  10. Very nice. Feb 2010.
