Ashford in the Water is a very pretty village. At the time of our visit, due to coronavirus. there was only one pub open, even the local shop was closed. It is very well situated to some beautiful walks and scenery. We would certainly go again.

What a lovely cottage and very nice owners who came around to show us how to use things as well as a fantastic welcome pack. The village location is excellent with a short walk to everything, some really good long walks around and the bus stops within a few yards. There is a lot going on in the area and this cottage is ideally placed.

We were met at the property by the owners, who were very friendly and helpful. Initial impressions were that the cottage was warm and cosy, with efficient central heating as well as an attractive gas fire for a quick boost if you needed it. In the kitchen was a lovely little welcome basket, with tea, coffee, biscuits and chocolate, with a bottle ofRead more milk in the fridge, as well as a vase of fresh flowers. We loved it, wouldnt hesitate to go again and thoroughly recommend you visit! Hide

Recently returned from a weeks stay in this lovely very well equipped cottage, which has had a brand new bathroom recently installed. Although small it is perfectly adequate for 2 people. The kitchen is very well equipped, including washing machine, and the bathroom even had small bottles of shower gel, shampoo and plenty of toilet rolls supplied.
