    • “Such a beautiful place. The balcony is wonderful. There's everything you could wish for in the cottage and the hosts are welcoming but discreet. The road to the cottages is very narrow, we thought we had taken the wrong route and would end up in a field! However if you persevere with the road you end up in a very peaceful and special place.”

    Ms Carter, LINCOLN, June 2018

    • “The owners of the property are very consciientious about maintaining their own high standards which is spread further than points mentioned in the survey They ensure their guests can be well informed about the flora and fauna ( pocket reference books and binoculars). In the immediate vicinity of the cottage you can observe the birds from a picnic table in the middle of of a wild flower meadow situated on the valley side , the view is stunning. For lovers of the countryside this is a wonderful cottage.”

    Mrs Nancolas, HOPE VALLEY, June 2018

    • “We have been to the cottage several times before and it has a lovely home from home feel, it is a place to relax watch the birds and you are able to just chill out, the cottage has everything you need.”

    Mrs Cable, COVENTRY, March 2018
