Finished to a very high standard throughout with plenty of space for the whole family and the children. Julianne was very helpful and accommodating. We had a wonderful stay and would not hesitate to book this property again.

Nothing is spared in the provision to make the stay here as perfect as possible. To try and fully describe the cottage would still be doing it a disservice . Seeing is believing and this place has to be seen and experienced to be fully appreciated. We have stayed in many places for weekends etc and the woodland retreat in our opinion has set the bar, extremely high. Hopefully we will book again in the new year.
