    • “A pretty cottage in wonderful countryside with walks straight from the door. A well designed and attractive private garden to sit out in. The caretaker is friendly, kind and helpful. The village shop and cafe across the road have some good food, with most of the basics you need, and the volunteer staff there are very welcoming.”

    Ms Fraser, Venezia, June 2018

    • “The cottage is quiet, cosy, well equipped and attractively furnished. The king size bed in the main bedroom is very comfortable, and the electric aga is a real boon in the colder months. I spent a month there and had no car but didn't feel the lack of one. Holne is a delightful village, peaceful, beautiful views and a strong community spirit. The shop across the road, run by volunteers, is well stocked, and the cafe` serves good plain food. Those running the shop and cafe` are so friendly and helpful, and make you feel a welcome part of the village. I have mobility problems, so could only do short walks, but those I was able to do from the cottage door were very pleasant: lovely views, and it was easy to get into open countryside. I'd recommend the cottage to anyone, families, couples or those on their own. I'd also recommend it to those with mobility problems, provided they can manage stairs, and short walks. The only thing I'd suggest is that the owners provide towels as well as bedding, as it can be a problem bringing your own towels, especially if you're a guest coming from abroad.”
