I'm looking to book a late autumn break and happened to see a bad review for wychways cottage on this site. I stayed here earlier in the year and couldn't disagree more with the person who made all the negative comments. I rarely bother to write reviews, but felt I had to try and redress things. We had a wonderful time at wychways. It was clean and smart when we arrived. It's in a beautiful and peaceful location. You can walk to two nice pubs. The kitchen has everything you might need. The dining room table is fun to sit around. The living room is cosy. The bath is huge and wonderful for a nice relaxing soak. It even has a four poster bed! I would be delighted to stay here again. (And we didn't hear a dog bark once!)
