Really good place to stay there was only one thing I would change. The water pipes made a very load noise whenever the taps were turned on, this was very annoying in the morning or at night with slightly different going to bed/waking up times of our party.

Great cottage, plenty of space. Nice garden. Owners are very friendly. High standaard throughout. Nice peaceful village setting.

Reviewed by Karen, 12th August 2018

HiThe Cottage was excellent but we were a little let down by the fact that some of the food items you said were provided we did not receive. When we got to the cottage we noticed that there was no jam which I did mention to the owner and she brought a jar immediately but after that we also noticed there were no eggs and also no fruit. Also the lighRead morets around the BBQ area did not work and there was no lighter fuel and as we were having a BBQ it would have added to our nightI know these are little niggles but probably should be checked especially the basket of food.

Relaxing stay at Curlew Cottage.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay but as we were 6 adults and 3 children I think a bigger fridge would have been better.

Lovely cottage and very well appointed. The games room was a real hit - an added bonus. Would definitely visit again and recommend to others. 2 pubs serving good food in 10 minute walking distance :)
