After an long drive for about 4 hours we arrived in Marrick just before dark. And we were happy to be welcomed by such a homely feeling lovely cottage. All was very clean, and everything was working, a lovely old fashion kitchen, a very modern bathroom, and 2 nice decorated bedrooms, the cottage has central heating and is working very well, so we were pleasantly surprised with the cottage, we had a great break, and booked again for next year

We loved the house - elegant and spacious, with good bedrooms for all of us (we've stayed in some places where there are a couple of lovely rooms but the rest are only adequate). The drawing and dining rooms were particularly appreciated. The boot room was always warm and dry when we returned from long walks - and it was so nice to be able to do varied walks direct from the house, or with the help of the Little White Bus. Cath was an excellent host - responded to our requests immediately (including a whole new oven!). We'd love to stay again.
