Delightful cottage in a wonderful location

5 of 5
Booked the cottage as a Birthday surprise for my partner, we loved it. The cottage is perfect, if you want a break from the stresses of everyday life, this is the place for you. The cottage is a home from home, fully equipped kitchen, large comfy bed with beautiful linen, huge bath and good quality towels. The log burner was fabulous and much needed as the wind howled outside we were cosy and warm in front of the fire. Nice little village, we ate in both pubs - good pub grub. Just what we need to recharge our batteries - fabulous!

Tasmin's Cottage

5 of 5
An exceptionally well presented cottage designed to a high specification. Immaculately clean, comfortable and airy. We arrived to flowers and scones, jam and clotted cream. Inclusive is a dishwasher, washing machine, split oven, ceramic hob, microwave and an abundance of kitchen utensils, not to mention the huge fridge freezer and an array of kitchen cutlery, plates etc. Bedrooms immaculate with two en-suite bathrooms. In winter the open log burner was an added bonus. Outside there is an inviting hot tub which runs perfectly. Now that we have given the game away about this gem everyone will want to come there! Christine and Roger were the perfect invisible hosts. Would we stay here again - you bet!
