Our third stay at this wonderful house and garden which provides everything we need for a totally relaxing, and private, break away from the hustle and bustle of urban life. We hope to visit again in the not too distant future. more

This is a fabulous location - I never visited the same place twice until I found this amazing place, now I return every year. It is perfect: quiet, secluded, safe, an amazing place for the wildlife enthusiast. Red Deer, Roe Deer, Red Kites all come near the garden, wood peckers , wrens and siskins. If you didn't want to leave the cottage you would still have plenty to see and do. You will not be disappointed. The cottage has everything you need and is very comfortable. I love the real fire in the evenings while watching the red deer in the field. more
