A wonderful little haven!

5 of 5
The hosts, Hilary and John, are both very friendly and helpful and on hand should you need help with the property or advice regarding the surrounding area. The property is beautifully kept, inside and out, and has all the home comforts (and more) that you would wish for during a stay away from home. An absolute little peace haven, and ideal location to relax and enjoy. Our party of 4 thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and returned home very much refreshed and relaxed. Thank you for hosting us and sharing your wonderful cottage.

Excellent mini-apartment in the countryside

5 of 5
I needed a quiet pied-a-terre while I attended a motorcycle show at Bath & West showground - this exceeded my expectations. Good communication on booking, easy directions, and a cosy comfortable interior - warm even on a very cold winter weekend. All the necessary equipment and a well fitted shower and toilet. Oh, and a very comfortable bed, everything well laid out. Hosts very helpful and accommodating
