The Croft combines a great location with comfort and friendly welcoming hosts. We had a truly relaxing and peaceful stay. Highly recommended.

Very nice welcome from the Pedreschis who live next door to the pretty cottage, which is totally quiet and very restful. The garden is gorgeous and it was lovely to eat out in, although it would be nice to have more garden furniture to relax on (only one sun bed - no cushions). Bedroom very comfortable - shower cubicle in en suite VERY small - but owners say they will be addressing that. Despite being advertised, there was no internet connection which was very frustrating.
Hello Elizabeth and thank you for your review. In regard to the internet, we DO have internet but unfortunately the day before you arrived the area had an electical storm which downed all internet connection in our village, including ours. Being a rural area, repairs take longer than a large city and we were unable to hurry the process despite having an IT person come and check to make sure it was not a problem with just our internet. Not being able to provide internet to our guests is very disappointing for us as well but beyond our control when the whole area is disconnected.

If you are looking for a really relaxing holiday then this is it! The cottage was very cosy and comfortable and had everything you need for a complete get away.We particularly loved the garden, the view from the back door and patio area was amazing! Tom and Christina were extremely welcoming and at hand to give advice about things to do in the area. The canoing centre nearby is great and we had a lot of fun both on and in the water!We enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone looking to get away from it all!
