"Emerald Cottages, a gem!"

The Emerald Cottages provided us with a sanctuary to relax and unwind for what was a very stressful time. Verity and Steve were charming hosts who could be contacted at any time for assistance though far enough removed to ensure that our private space was not compromised. The attention to detail along with small unexpected gestures offered by the Emerald Cottages will ensure that we will re-visit the accommodation.

"A sanctuary to revive my spirits"

I spent 6 weeks in this property with my husband and 3 children whilst our house was renovated. A beautiful property finished to a high standard with the most helpful & kind owners you could ask for. Nothing was too much trouble. An extra bed was provided to accomodate our youngest...and even a Christmas tree. The property is well equipped with 2 spacious bedrooms and an open plan kitchen/diner/lounge with fabulous views over the fields (great sunsets/sunrises). Plenty of room to hang your clothes, comfortable beds, lovely shower (always hot), Wi-fi included. Really useful with children to have access to clothe washing facilities on site included. The property is about 10mins to the main supermarkets and takeaways/restaurants in Buntingford and is well placed to travel to London & Cambridge. The highlight of our children's stay was making friends with the horses and seeing a white stag, a Tawny owl, and a variety of unusual birds. A truly peaceful sanctuary where I felt all my worries drop away as I entered through the door. I am so glad we found you and thank you for having us.
