    • “Amazing and stunning. We will be talking about this wonderful cottage for years to come. Lovely setting, beautiful stream to watch the yellow wagtails (and heron!) right outside the door. Everything you would think of for your own home was here. Meeting the owners was a joy also. Highly recommended.”

    • “Excellent cottage - would definitely recommend. The owners were there when we arrived and showed us how everything worked which was really helpful. They had even left us a bottle of fizz for NYE. Even in Dec/Jan the cottage was warm and cosy. The kitchen was so well equpped and there were lots of Dvds, books and games for those rainy days. The location was spectacular, quiet and peaceful - you drove down to the mill - so picturesque and the stream was beautiful. Nearby pubs were plentiful within a 5 mile radius.”

    • “Access to the hotel swimming pool was great & we used it a lot. The cottage was very comfortable and in a quiet, attractive location. The hosts were friendly & gave us lots of tips about local places to visit with the children. Cottage would be even better if shower was upgraded & there was a heated towel rail/somewhere to dry wet things.”
