"A truly perfect all round place to stay."
It pains me to praise the standard of the cottage as I feel that I may never be able to return, owing to the bookings this may generate.
The cottage is perfectly placed right in the town centre. Don't let that put you off as there is very little noise. It is extremely well presented with all of the ornate touches you may expect in a period cottage, including a log burner in the living room. It has a well equipped kitchen and we had a lovely welcome pack on our arrival. We only used the car twice as we went hill walking straight from the cottage most days.
Sally the owner was lovely and extremely helpful. She has gone to enormous lengths to make the stay as comfortable as possible. She has thought of just about everything when it comes to hospitality.
There is everything on the doorstep, from the takeaway, Co-op store, butchers, bakers and not to mention the Kings Arms pub, which is very cosy, with friendly licensees and customers. (just a note, most eateries are closed on a Monday, with the exception of the Bucks Head).
We had a fantastic week and look forward to returning to both the cottage and our most favourite town in England.
Thank you both very much. Look forward to welcoming you back again. Sally x

"Wonderful cottage, equipped with everything you might need."
Stayed here over Easter for 4 nights, the cottage is wonderful, equipped with everything you might need. And the log burning stove was a real plus. Great location for walking and cycling. Also very handy to have access to garden shed for storage. Plenty of places to eat and drink within a couple of minutes walk.

"Magically Birthday Week"
My friend and I visited the cottage for a week at the end of November into early December for my Birthday. When entering the cottage initially we were both surprised about how Bea's Cottage looked just like the photos, in fact even better. Everything in the cottage made us both feel at home. Even David, (the Owners husband) had lit the fire on arrival so the cottage was lovely and warm and homely. Sally the owner had thought of everything, from milk, tea, coffee, to washing up liquid, even little chocolates on our bed side tables and a home made cake. Sally had greeted us at the property and shown us around the cottage, and told us of everything we needed to know, additionally to this she has provided much information about the property and also the local area in her property guide book. I must honestly say that this is probably one of the only property's I have been to so far that I would definitely want to re-visit. If I could of changed the weather then I my Birthday would of been perfect, but although I couldn't, it did not stop us going out and about and continuing our week. Sally and David's personal touch about the whole experience just made it complete. Thank you both so much, and I hope to see you again soon.
