“Sweet Cottage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

I stayed at Lorna for my 30th birthday with my fiancee and my parents. I had high expectations as had thoroughly scowered the net for a beautiful cottage. Lorna was beautiful and everything I hoped it would be. We ate in 2 of the 3 nights and enjoyed the ambience and amenities of the cottage which I thoroughly recommend people do. Indulged in a deep bath with salts and soaked up the rustic garden.

It was a tonic and am very glad we went. It went off without a hitch! Thank you to Caroline.

A few things we appreciated: It is a holiday cottage where the nice things are put out for guests to use - no crud, which was lovely. Beautiful paintings and trinkets on display, excellent kitchen utensils.

A couple of things we noticed would be lovely for future guests: A box of tissues on the bedside would have been wonderful, and the mattress on the four poster bed was for me a little hard - my fiancee thought it was fine though. Perhaps a pillow top would be a lovely investment.

The other thing was the expressway / train line from the garden was quite loud so it wasn't as peaceful as I thought it might be when sitting in the garden, but inside the house it didn't disturb.

Thanks again Caroline - I had a brilliant time :)

“Exceeded expectations in every way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2012 for a stay in January 2012

This exquisite place was on my list following a review in August edition of Country Style. We had high expectations and were astounded that it was everything and more. The amount of thought that has gone into the detail of this place is breathtaking. Whilst we only booked for 2 days we ended up staying a week. A week of pure relaxation in a one of a kind place. The garden was peaceful and is tendered regularly. The kitchen is well appointed with top of the range implements and appliances. The items in the house were to be seen to be believed and I'm now looking for one of these beds for my home. I cannot praise this place highly enough. It's more than a home away from home it's heaven at leura. I will defenately be returning in the near future.
