    • “This is an excellent holiday cottage with every thing you need. An ideal perfect setting in the owners grounds. Richard, the owner, is a lovely, pleasant and cheerful man who is happy to chat. He keeps the grounds and Honey House immaculate. Jessie the Labrador is also more than happy to play and brightened my day. A wonderful relaxing and enjoyable week. I would recommend this cottage to anyone.”

    Ms Williams, Taunton, October 2018

    • “Honey House is just perfect. Second time visiting for us and was even more beautiful than we remembered. Ideally situated for exploring Devon and Cornwall and always lovely to come home to at the end of the day. The cosy cottage itself is very well equipped with everything you might need and Richard is always available should you need him. He really is the perfect host. The gardens and water mill are just the extra bonus that really do make Honey House a cut above the rest. Already planning our next trip.”

    Mrs Murray, NOTTINGHAM, October 2018

    • “We have visited Honey House many times and each time it has been perfect inside and out. It is immaculately clean and so relaxing. The garden and grounds are beautiful and we can't wait to go again.”

    Mrs Hogg, Coventry, August 2018

    • “We enjoyed our stay very much. It's the perfect holiday home in a wonderful setting. Everything you need is already there and even more. Especially we liked the garden and grounds. Our host provided us with tips for our excursions. We loved our week at Honey House.”

    Mrs Gilberg, Neuwied, June 2018

    • “Honey House was idyllic. The house itself was very well equipped and had everything we needed when we arrived plus nice extras like flowers on the table and cakes to have with a cup of tea. Our host was charming and ensured that we had everything we needed. The garden and grounds were delightful and we were welcome to wander in them and in the woodlands behind the cottage. We were there for three weeks and had fresh linen and towels each weekend. Richard was around if we needed him and was working in the grounds most days but never imposed himself. Altogether a perfect holiday in a wonderful area for walking or driving or just being at peace.”

    Mr Gilmour, Edinburgh, April 2018

    • “Very nice cottage, beautiful environment, very friendly owner.”

    Mr Gosen, 2382 Gp, April 2018

    • “Another blissful week spent at The Honey House and not a cloud in the sky, which gave us plenty of time to enjoy the beautifully kept gardens, and explore the woods and river for wildlife. The cottage is immaculate with everything you need, and you feel instantly relaxed as soon as you arrive. With the added little extra's left by the host and attention to detail, you soon realise how welcoming this property is. We will never tire of visiting and think this property thoroughly deserves 5***** Tranquil is how we describe it! Thank you”

    Mrs Clarke, Coalville, June 2018
