Upon arrival we were struck by the tranquility of the cottages surrounding garden and woodlands. Our dogs immediately found the secret paths and had great fun chasing each other (and us) around the garden. The garden is a childrens dream with swings and slides hidden amongst the foliage and trees. The cottage itself is a delight with great thought given allowing you to enjoy the outside during cold weather whilst snug indoors. The owner made sure we were well catered for and checked in to ensure we enjoyed our stay whilst giving us the space to enjoy our week undesturbed. Unfortunately we didn't get to visit the local pubs but we plan to on our next trip. Little Marsland was a joy to stay at and we very much look forward to returning. 🙂

A cream tea and fresh eggs from the hens awaited us. Our grandsons really enjoyed the wonderful garden which was a child's paradise with goal net, rope swing, treehouse, hammock and woods and loads of space. The setting is very quiet and peaceful and we enjoyed a very relaxing week.
