  • “I have spent many years here, visiting family in village, it is very comfortable and clean.”

    ....the only issues I had was, no milk on arrival to make drink and the radiator in front room under window needs bleeding...I did leave a note for housekeeper to pass on, other than that I would always recommend it. I will return next year!

    Thank you for your feedback, It's good to hear you enjoyed the cottage and intend to return again next year. And thank you for your comments - all the radiators are fine again and thermostats are calling for heat as necessary. And we're currently providing milk in sachets for that essential first cuppa on arrival. Best wishes. Property Owner
