What a wonderful pocket of peace in a cosy house with everything you could need. The cottages were spotless with everything you needed. The outside bath and piping hot water were a real treat. And birds galore!

A wonderful, peaceful, comfortable old cottage in woodland with abundant birdlife and a nice garden to sit in and watch the bird visitors. Very well equipped with kitchen utensils. Boiling hot water from a donkey boiler. Very friendly and helpful hosts, Mark and his wife.

Way more than we expected, absolute paradise if you're a nature lover. Really pretty flowers and butterflies and even a few monkeys visited us. Completely private too which makes for the perfect romantic getaway.
