We're just back from 3 nights at Codley Gate, and the entire family (including the dog) enjoyed the break. The cottage is wonderfully comfortable and we felt at home right away. The furniture and equipment is all in the "5 star" category - it feels like no expense has been spared and everything has been done very thoughtfully. For example, you rarely get a proper welly dryer in a rental cottage, but it's very handy. If you have very young children, you might want to take some plastic dishes since the stuff here is all Denby - nicer than we have at home!
The children enjoyed playing "pooh sticks" at the stream outside and they thought it was great fun to see chickens running around outside. We appreciated the peaceful setting.
Vindolanda (literally next door) is well worth a visit and the Roman Army Museum is great, too.
Claire and Neil were very pleasant to deal with, helpful but not intrusive. Many thoughtful little touches which add to the enjoyment: fresh flowers, a bottle of wine - even a treat for the dog.
Whilst not the cheapest option, the cottage is excellent value for money because everything is such high standard. We would definitely like to go back. As our 3 year old said, "I want to keep the cottage".
