Had a wonderful time staying at Bird song cottage for our honeymoon. gorgeous room with balcony and hot tub. Very high standard. And the lovely couple who run it made us feel very welcome. And breakfast in bed was a lovely touch, we will be back 😊

my husband and myself stayed in the haven suite for a weekend, and it meet all our requirements and more. As already said by previous reviews, you could not meet any nicer hosts than Sandra and Richard. If pure relaxation is what you are looking for, in perfect location, comfortable bed, fantastic breakfast brought to your room, and a private... More

Sandra showed us to our room... More

Just returned from a one night stay in the haven room at Birdsong Cottage and it really was a perfect romantic hideaway! I booked this for my boyfriends 40th and we literally couldn't fault it.

Just returned this morning from birdsong cottage. Wow what can I say, we booked the haven room very last minute and we're greeted warmly by both Richard and Sandra on arrival. The room was beyond our expectations and the outdoor decking and hot tub were amazing! The room, bathroom were well equipped with everything you could possibly want or need... More

I searched the Internet extensively for somewhere special to stay for me and my husband's 8th wedding anniversary this coming weekend. I found Birdsong and instantly wanted to stay here, however it is booked up most Saturdays for the rest of the year. The Treehouse restaurant is also booked up for this Saturday, so we booked the day off work... More
