    • “Val and Julian the owners were very friendly and helpful, and couldn't have done more for our family. The property had everything needed to make our stay an excellent one. The location is ideal, even though Postbridge is very popular with walkers, we hardly saw anyone walk by the cottage on the permissive path/bridleway. So enjoyed our stay we have already booked it again.”

    Mr Wallis, Hull, December 2018

    • “The Annexe is a great place if you want to get away from it all and enjoy walking. There are several walks from the property and even a friendly pub for a late pub lunch on the way back.”

    Mrs O'callaghan, Chatham, July 2018

    • “Lovely cottage. Friendly welcome. Great views. Perfect for walkers.”

    Mrs Morgan, TAUNTON, June 2018

    • “This was a lovely comfortable and peaceful Annexe, ideally located for walkers and dog walkers. Short walk downhill to (dog friendly) pub and village or another takes you down steep rocky path to river. Owners very friendly and welcoming. Postbridge would benefit from a cafe or coffee shop, there are plenty of visitors and walkers passing through. Post Office offers limited refreshments with just four wooden tables outside.”

    Mr Cook, GREAT MISSENDEN, June 2018
