Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. First impression on arrival was the very clean and well maintained courtyard and once inside the spacious interior. Well equipped to a very high standard (including sharp knives and local OS maps). Glennis and John gave a warm, friendly and informative welcome and were always available without being intrusive. June 2012.
  2. This is in an excellent location within easy reach of the coast but in a rural position. The cottage is in very good condition, well furnished, warm and equipped with everything that we needed. The owners are very welcoming and attentive. March 2012.
  3. Third visit to the Bullpen. We were the only unit occupied on the site, but we knew that would be the case in Feb! Tip Top Standards here. Home from home. Owners came to see us regularly. John is a real gent. Will go again. Tom and Christine Sheppard. Jan 2012.
  4. Comfortable accommodation ideally located for visiting the many seaside towns & places of interest in the area. Welcoming & friendly hosts. This was our third stay and would recommend it to anyone who wants to escape from the rat race and recharge their batteries! Sept 2011.
  5. The owners of the property made us feel very welcome and we even had fun feeding their three alpacas. We knew they would have helped us if we had needed anything, as they lived on site. The location was lovely and peaceful, yet close to all the main beaches and attractions. We loved the local nature reserves too. A real success. July 2011.
  6. The best/nicest cottage we have stayed at yet, lovely setting, lovely owners who go out of their way to make you feel welcome, lovely area lots to do, lovely lovely!!! April 2011.
  7. This was a real home from home (we have a duck pond, too, opposite our house!). The property owners were very welcoming and helpful. The standard of everything was excellent, including a good set of knives (I usually take a sharp one with me), excellent shower and good audio equipment. There was plenty of space and storage. Can’t wait to return. March 2011.
  8. It was a pleasure to find a holiday cottage that was well appointed and clean. The owners were very welcoming and friendly and only too happy to be of assistance. The location was peaceful (apart from the traffic to the local farm which whizzed past occasionally)and the views superb. Easy access to the coast and countryside made it an ideal destination for us. March 2011.
  9. Lovely view, friendly owners, well laid out cottage. Dec 2010.
  10. This was well presented, comfortable, warm considering the weather and very quiet, just what we needed for a short break. Nov 2010.
  11. Owners very welcoming. The cottage was extremely clean, tidy and well equipped. Oct 2010.
  12. Very comfortable, high standard of furnishing. Aug 2010.
  13. Very well equipped and very comfortable accommodation. July 2010.
  14. Attractively furnished, sparkling cleanliness - we thought it was newly furnished, which turned out not to be the case. The courtyard and gardens were very attractive and the owners friendly and helpful without being obtrusive. My husband enjoyed the quiet, as he is noise-allergic, and I enjoyed the bull cartoons (we were staying in the former bull pen) and the photos showing the transformation in progress. It would be a lovely place for several groups from the same family to take cottages together. Aug 2010.
  15. Liked the layout and facilities. July 2010.
  16. Log burner was used as cold two nights. Good supply of kindling, logs, firelidhters etc. Very Homely complex, been twice, would go again but probably wont as we want to see different part of country next time. June 2010.
  17. Absolutely beautiful, felt like you were in the middle of nowhere but everything in close proximity. A little bit of heaven on Earth. March 2010.
  18. A character property, clean and light and airy. Feb 2010.
  19. Homely, classy and very well equipped and the cleanliness was excellent. Location spot on. We have never had one of your brochures. Please forward one at your convenience. Sept 2009.
  20. Modern kitchen with a country cottage feel. Very well equipped thoughout. Sept 2009.
