We’ve just got back from a week at this lovely cottage. Debra and David have a gorgeous place, very relaxing, we felt at home right away. The cottage is well equipped, Debra has really thought of everything. All cleaning products are provided which is refreshing, we’ve been to many gites where the first thing you have to do is shop for washing up liquid!! There is an English socket bank so you can charge all your electrical items, a Nespresso machine, two hairdryers, and a basket of toiletries that others have ‘left behind’ so if you’ve forgotten something it’s likely to be there! The beds are comfy and the sheets a fabulous cotton. Should it get colder at night there are blankets in every cupboard. The cottage itself is quite isolated which means a fantastic nights sleep, there’s no light and no sound until a local cockerel sings and you get used to him quite quickly. The villages around are beautiful and many hours can be spent pottering. Debra has lots of local knowledge so was able help us with places to go and see which was very useful. There is a lake down the road with otters which was special. The swimming pool at the cottage is beautifully maintained by David and reaches a good temperature using a clever solar cover. There are lots of inflatables and balls to play with. Dotted around the garden are several chairs so you can hide away or chase the sun. The VIP shed is a lovely idea for cooler evenings so you can still eat outside and the dart board on the side became one of my sons favourite things, I’m sure we will have one soon :-) There was even an owl hunt for the children and a few local goodies as gifts on our arrival which were delicious. Thank you so much for a really lovely holiday.
We (two parents plus 7 & 9 year olds) had a fab time in the Orchard View gite. It is a a well looked after gite with enough room for a family of four for a week. The beds were comfortable and the the rooms well presented. Each gite has its own patio which is very private - Orchard view was in dappled shade - perfect given the warm temperatures. The pool is undoubtedly the best pool we’ve experienced on our many gite holidays as when we stayed the temperature was tropical!
Mark, Ross, Laura and the family team were quick to respond to questions when booking and are onsite if required - and were always incredibly helpful & approachable.
The only caveat I have is that if you are a late riser be aware that it is very rural and the local cockerels did start kicking off from 7am-ish! This however was not a problem for us and we had a fabulous time. Mark & team - thanks to you all!
