One of the best equipped cottages we've stayed in and spotlessly clean on arrival. Very comfortable and the hot tub was superb. The owner checked the hot tub every day but never disturbed us.

Wonderful short stay at this excellent property. On entering you immediately see the care and attention given by the owners. House was spotless clean and very well equipped. Good sized rooms and great kitchen. The welcome pack was a great surprise. The hot tub was fab and warm, really relaxing. We plan to return one the current situation improves.

Not the prettiest house or location but we were looking for a weekend escape to hide from the world so for that it was perfect! Good access in to the centre. Exceptionally clean with everything you needed, apart from a bath but who needs that with the covered hot tub, which was by far the cleanest one we have ever experienced. Lovely little welcomeRead more gifts too :) We had a great weekend, thank you! Hide

The cottage had everything needed to have an amazing holiday. I loved that the owners left us holiday essentials and a bottle of prosecco. We could not fault it at all. The hot tub was spotless and checked everyday. The owners left us alone for the duration of the holiday. Contact number was provided if we wanted to contact them.
