    • “we had a lovely stay, the cottage was really clean within a really quiet location but only a short drive to the shops, the cream tea waiting for us was a nice touch and the owner was helpful, our terrier loved the walk next to the stream within the gardens, really nice”

    Mrs Haynes, Brecon, September 2018

    • “A truely hidden gem. It ticked every box for our requirements. A wonderful dog friendly location with a beautiful secluded garden with access along the river. Didn’t manage to visit everything in one week so would certainly go back and would also recommend to others.”

    Mrs Tearle, Watford, September 2018

    • “An excellent cottage that is very well equipped. We were made to feel very welcome and had everything we needed on hand. The cottage caters very well for dogs with lots of local walks. The cottage is ideally located to travel to both North Devon and Cornwall. We had a wonderful week and thoroughly recommend to other travelers. We hope to come back!”

    Mrs Jacobs, Chipping Norton, July 2018

    • “A really well equipped cottage, everything we could have wanted was there and it was very clean a good size garden and with the added benefit of being able to use the field for our dog who also had a brilliant time padding in the river We had a lovely relaxing time and will be booking again when we get so more time off work Thank you to Mervyn and Carol”

    Ms Whitehouse, Smethwick, July 2018

    • “Lovely place for a couple to get away from it all and reconnect with each other and nature - the cream tea on arrival was a great bonus.”
