This is a lovely place to stay, immaculately maintained, with lovely Bachs near the river. This is such a romantic spot, we loved the wood-fired baths, and the breakfasts decorated so beautifully with fresh flowers from the garden.

My husband booked a cottage for a relaxing, romantic weekend break to celebrate our 34th Wedding Anniversary. It was amazing!! The cottage was spotlessly clean with lovely personal touches such as the fresh flowers from the garden to the fresh picked raspberries and water melon available for us to eat. The attention to detail was amazing from the lovely period... More

What an amazing experience. Everything you could ever want in a getaway. Perfect host, cosy cottage, romantic bath, secluded spaces and fresh flowers. Couldn't recommend Warm Earth Cottage enough. My husband and I had the most wonderful time celebrating our 2nd wedding anniversary in the cottage Tranquility. Most certainly memorable in the most wonderful way.

We booked the cottage for the night before and on our wedding, the wedding took place near by. Jan (host) was so helpful and communicative with everything from the planning of the booking till even after we left, we couldn't have had a better host. In my opinion she bent over backwards for us with hospitality. It was the perfect... More

Oh my gosh there aren't enough words to describe this place, heaven on earth, a piece of paradise are a few things that come to mind. The property is just immaculate and the cottage is so clean & cosy. Very tastefully decorated and has everything you need. As for the host, well she is just world class - what a... More

If you're needing an escape to unwind, relax and reconnect, this is where you should be! The grounds are beautiful - spacious, well landscaped and with a river (which in summer would make a fab swimming spot) at the bottom. So much birdsong! It is laid out in a way that makes it easy to seem you are the only... More

The place was situated in a valley which added further to that feel of complete privacy and far away from the madding crowd. Our host was discrete and solely focussed on ensuring that we were comfortable and not wanting of anything. The outdoor hot tub was sheer indulgence. Beautifully appointed cabins with the ultimate comfortable bed. Lots of tuis and... More

One of our favourite places to stay in the world! Beautiful cosy cottage with comfy luxurious bed and wood burner to stay warm. The woodfired outdoor bath is amazing! Jan is the best hostess and puts so much effort into making our stay special. Can't recommend this highly enough! We will go back every year.

This place is bliss, we had a lovely time. No power, no interruptions. The outdoor bath was fantastic, the host was very discreet but she looked after us so well! We woke up the next morning to a basket of breakfast ingredients and didn't even hear her. The cabins are gorgeous, comfy bed, lovely and clean and a nice atmosphere.... More

The most relaxing experience in beautiful scenery ever! Fantastic food and amazing host Jan. My highlight was soaking in the hot tub with a wine and listening to the sounds of the wildlife. Highly recommend.
