    • “Perfect holiday home for those that like to be away from it all. Can’t fault accommodation. Some of family were a little disappointed in the TV reception. Hope to return.”

    Mrs Warbrick, Epsom, October 2018

    • “Moorside Cottage is an amazing property; so comfortable and beautiful tranquil gardens. Many top of the range features in this spotless bungalow. Would definitely stay here again.”

    Mrs Lovegrove, Devizes, September 2018

    • “Moorside cottage is a beautiful peaceful retreat away from all the stresses of everyday life. The cottage is a real home from home, supplied with everything needed for the perfect family holiday. It's very comfortable, spotlessly clean and well presented. The gardens and the conservatory were the icing on the cake! A real find ! Hope to go back real soon.”

    Mrs Davies, Ferndale, July 2018

    • “A spacious, comfortable, single storey cottage with a modern well equipped kitchen, and excellent Mira showers in both the main and ensuite bathrooms. Spectacular well-planned gardens, with grassed areas, arbours, beautiful trees and shrubs, and well-placed bird tables and bird baths to admire the variety of visitors.. The thoughtful owners had even left a variety of bird food for us to purchase. The cottage was in a very remote location, which although was a bit of a challenge to locate initially, nonetheless was very well suited to our party and our two dogs. All of our party are city dwellers, therefore it was so enjoyable to get away from the noise and lights of the city, with no traffic noise and to enjoy the night sky, without the pollution from street lighting. Lots of information on the cottage itself and the various attractions in the area, plus maps and walks. The owners seemed to go out of their way to be welcoming and helpful. Variety of good walks, beaches and restaurants in the vicinity.”

    Ms Lowe, Leicester, July 2018

    • “Have been to moorside cottage before and came back again because it is a very clean, comfortable and a relaxing place to stay. Peaceful and secluded couldn't ask for a better place to stay, all in all a wonderful holiday. Thankyou.”

    Mrs Pursall, June 2018

    • “It is a wonderful situated cottage, very well equipped and tastefully decoreted. A well kept garden with a lot of flowers and birds Very quiet and lovely fresh air and delicious spring water”

    Heusdens, May 2018

    • “The beautiful bungalow and gardens only spoiled by the lack of comfy sun loungers to complement the deck dining furniture”
