Loved the Garden Suite

5 of 5
Beautifully decorated, afternoon tea was scrumptious. Loved the hot tub in the very private garden. A little oasis !! Would definitely recommend.

Fantastic getaway from reality! Could not recommend enough!

5 of 5
I don't often write reviews but had to take the time to write something about this wonderful property and its even more wonderful owners Robin and Jan. The property itself is beautifully located 'away from it all'. You rarely hear anything but birds and wildlife. Really is a fantastic getaway from a busy life. The views from the garden are unbelievable with stunning sunsets - genuinely I can not put this into words. Easy to drive to with excellent directions from Robin and Jan. The property itself is perfectly kept and clean. I have never been to a cottage with so many amenities. The little things like foil, pestle and mortars, blenders, really feels like you are in a home from home. I have to give this credit to Robin and Jan who truly care about the property and the people that stay in it. They were wonderful to talk to, we spoke for hours! But at the same time they are happy to leave you to it if you want. They were so helpful on local walks and travel tips. In addition they were happy for us to bring our cat and new kitten which was very kind of them. Overall, if you are looking for a quiet, peaceful trip to get away from it all, you have found the place. Could not recommend enough and will certainly be returning!! Thank you greatly from Danny, Jenny, Nala and Kiwi.
