Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. A very peaceful and relaxing holiday. Very quiet with beautiful walks in the surrounding area, especially the deer park. Sept 2012.
  2. The property was very well maintained. It is situated in a quiet area with good facilities near by. The garden next to the property is very nice and is a good space for outdoor eating if the weather is good! June 2012.
  3. Our stay was wonderful. Old orchard cottage is truly a delight to stay in! The owners were lovely, leaving us to ourselves. Really nice location. My daughter loved seeing the cows each morning. We liked it so much we stayed an extra night. Would recommend this cottage to anyone. Cant wait to go back. June 2012.
  4. Working farm location. Very friendly and helpful owner. Ideal for a quiet break and country walks also within easy access to Sherbourne. May 2012.
  5. A perfect holiday cottage, quiet and relaxing with only cows, birds and deers for company. May 2012.
  6. We booked Old Orchard Cottage as it was close to a wedding we were attending. Unfortunately the weather for the end of April was unseasonably cold, windy and very wet, however once inside Old Orchard Cottage it was quickly forgotten. The cottage has a very welcoming atmosphere, is very comfortable with lots of personal touches that show how thoughtful the owners are which included delicious chocolate biscuits upon arrival and heating on full blast to counter the terrible weather. April 2012.
  7. A beautiful, relaxing holiday. Completely quiet, except for the sound of the cows and the birds. Excellent walking from the back door. A well equipped comfortable cottage. March 2012.
  8. Idyllic country cottage, well equipped and in a beautiful, peaceful location. Nov 2011.
  9. A beautiful cottage in a superb peaceful location. Lovely cakes on arrival and apples on leaving. Very child friendly, and fantastic wildlife, dogs and cats. We will definately be back!! Oct 2011.
  10. Fantastic rustic cottage in great location. Kids loved being on a working farm and seeing all that went on. Oct 2011.
  11. This is a really relaxing and peaceful cottage with beautiful countryside all round. Lovely fixtures and fittings. Sept 2011.
  12. The cottage was in a beautiful location with lots to see and do around the area. It was very clean, extremely well equipped and we loved it. We also loved the three dogs and cats. June 2011.
  13. This cottage is welcoming, quiet and beautifully decorated. A peaceful haven with lots of walks and wildlife in the area. March 2011.
  14. Very warm and cosy, just what i wanted ! Feb 2011.
  15. The cottage is clean, cosy and comfortable with many charming finishing touches and wanted for nothing. We loved the fact that so many wonderful walks were right on our doorstep. We really appreciated the wood burning stove and that all the fuel was provided.This is essential in my choice of cottage as I don’t want to have to find where it is possible to purchase kindling and logs,especially if we are miles from anywhere.It amazes me that so few cottages supply fuel,particularly those on farms where I would have thought logs and kindling were not difficult to obtain and are probably being used by the owners anyway. We also appreciated the prepared teat tray and delicious home cooked chocolate brownies. Feb 2011.
  16. The best self catering property that I have stayed in, so homely and inviting. Home made chocolate flapjacks and a tea tray laid up on arrival. Candles to light and a good wood stock for our open fires. Lovely owner who let us check out later on the Sunday due to no other booking that week. This is our 2nd visit and no doubt won’t be the last. Nov 2010.
  17. Prettily decorated, clean and had everything we needed, cutlery, bowls etc. also lots of reading material. Nov 2010.
  18. Very cosy & quiet. Sep 2010.
  19. The equipment and the general cleanliness were excellent.There were two TVs, a washing machine and a dishwasher, as well as lots of modern crockery and other kitchen aids. The accommodation provided a wonderful mixture of rustic charm and modern facilities. Sept 2010.
  20. Lovely cottage. Lots of animals. Aug 2010.
