“Idyllic country cottage”

Reviewed 16 Jan 2013

Lovely cottage with a cosy log fire in the living room. The kitchen is a great size and very well-equipped and the bedrooms are great too. The garden is beautiful and the village setting is very quaint. It is easy to reach a variety of interesting places by car. Tim and Alison were extremely friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

“Idyllic Country Cottage”

Reviewed 29 Nov 2012

Lovely stay at this quaint, thatched cottage. The location is around a quarter of a mile from A303, yet the cottage location is tranquil and rural, with main shops being around five miles away. Lots of old beams, a log burner and the range cooker, and more, which all make the cottage very cosy. And at the same time it is comfortable with a well stocked kitchen and lots of mod cons. The owners are such lovely people, and while they are respectful of privacy, they are on hand nearby. I definitely hope to return soon to this cottage.
