Lovely cottage with sunny terrace, beautiful gardens, and pretty much everything you might need to keep a toddler entertained. As a result, a perfect holiday for the adults too!
07 Jun 2013
Another wonderful holiday at the Quintassential, A great welcome from Rosa, Mick, Sophie and all the animals. If you want a lovely break in fantastic surroundings, look no further, they also cater for babies and children. Unfortunately Malcolm was ill, again!!, and had to spend some time at the local clinic, but they were marvellous, although he had to spend 3 hours on a drip, it wasn't too much trouble for Rosa to come and find out if we were ok, can't be more appreciative of a fantastic hostess. They have promised to book Malcolm into the clinic again next September as he always seems to have to go there every year!!! Thanks Rosa and Mick

As usual this holiday rental did not disappoint, we are always made welcome by Rosa, Mick and Sophie Gulliver and Alfie, Max and Indie (the dogs) are always glad to see us. The accommodation is superb, the welcome basket is as always very welcome when you arrive in the evening, Rosa will also offer to get in a take away meal if wanted, but all we want when we arrive is to sit on the patio with a very large glass of wine and watch the sunset.
Many thanks for taking the time to comment regarding your stay here at the Quintassential.
It is always a pleasure to welcome you both to the Quintassential and I know that one of our dogs especially can't wait for you to come back. Thankfully you do return to the Quintassential twice a year so our dog(s) get to enjoy your company. Our pigs also like your visit as they get little treats!
You can always guarantee a nice chilled glass of Rose is awaiting your arrival and also the other little extras we provide in our welcome hamper.
We look forward to welcoming you both back again in 2013 for your 22nd and 23rd return stay here, May 2012 can not come quick enough. Guests like yourselves (who have become our friends) are the reason why we love doing what we do.
