Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Once we found the property it was in a fabulous location, the owner was so helpful and the accommodation a home from home, very well stocked and very clean. Added touches of tea, coffee, milk, eggs and shortbread to greet us were lovely. The grounds were well manicured and kept that way throughout our stay. Would thoroughly reccommend this property for a relaxing holiday, fabulous, fabulous, fabulous. May 2012.
  2. The owners could not have been more helpful and obliging - they offered to unpack my tesco shop the night before our stay. The cottage was beautifully decorated for Christmas with a complimentary chocky bisky selection. They even replaced our TV with a brand new one when it packed up before Christmas. Many thanks it was wonderful!!! Dec 2011.
  3. The owners were very helpful, it was nice to find tea bags and short bread biscuits there waiting for us after a long journey, the children loved playing tennis every day and golf, also helping out with the ponies.
