We had a return stay in Gardeners Cottage and once again it was just what we needed. The location is peaceful and quiet and the owners are very helpful. The cottage itself is equipped with everything we needed and was spotlessly clean. Although small, just perfectly comfy and cosy for 2 people. We loved it and plan to stay a third time if available.

Mrs S,

A property of great character and charm. It is well equipped and has everything you need for a quiet countryside holiday. The proximity of the owners' house is a potential benefit in the event of problems. benefit

Mr M,

Lovely place to stay - beautiful and peaceful. Lovely walks and countryside.

Mr E,

This is a really nice holiday property for 2 people + a dog. Decorated and furnished tastefully and to a high standard. Very comfortable and lovely gardens. Nice owners in the main property.

Mr C,

Gardeners cottage is a delightful retreat. Quiet and surrounded by amazing views but also not far from many interesting places to visit. It is very well equipped and was immaculately clean. We were welcomed with fresh flowers and a lovely basket of goodies. The owners who live on site were very friendly and helpful -the cottage has its own private garden and is not overlooked so privacy is not a problem. We hope to make a return visit in the future and would highly recommend it to anyone else considering a stay.

Mrs D,

Quiet, peaceful location. Beautifully decorated and comfortable little cottage just right for two. Thoughtful touches such as fresh flowers and a welcome basket were appreciated.

Mrs K,

Very peaceful location cottage with high quality equipment and furnishings in a lovely setting, ideal if looking for a complete getaway

Mrs C,
