Beautiful well-appointed home in a gorgeous setting

5 of 5
We were welcomed to our holiday home by Edmund and Averil who answered our questions with ease. Every time we asked for help (walks, Vegan restaurants, nearest supermarkets etc) they were able to answer very quickly and knowledgeably. The pool is a nice size for cooling off in and the many places for dining, on the shady veranda or the other options in the wooded garden. The kitchen is fully equipped including SHARP knives (a first in a rental property for us!). The kitchen facilities were first class and important to us and as we spent a lot of time eating there. The garden is beautiful with some lovely planting and plentiful visitors in the form of bees and lovely hummingbird hawk-moths. The bedrooms and bathrooms are well appointed and comfortable. We were pleased with the large Smart TV, FreeSat and DVD player, so we were able to watch BBC coverage of Wimbledon and Netflix for films. There is a good selection of DVDs too! All in all we had a wonderful holiday and this was assisted greatly by the friendly help from Edmund and Averil. All 6 of us had a holiday to remember. Thank you!

This is our second stay at the wonderful Butterfly Cottage and again we didn't want to leave! On arrival there is a warm welcome from Linda and George the amazing hosts. Well the facilities, what can I say, we have been to some wonderful places but the cleanliness and comforts in this cottage are second to none. As soon as you walk through the door you feel relaxed and at home. The outside space gives you everything you could wish for ... peace, relaxation and privacy but the wonderful thing is that Linda is always there if you ever need any help or advice on were to go for days out. There are so many lovely places to visit within a vey close proximity. I would thoroughly recommend staying at this beautiful cottage and we love it so much we have booked again for two weeks next year. Thankyou Linda, George and Roosevelt for being such fantastic hosts
