We tried to book this in 2017 for a week in June 2018 but it was fully booked, so imagine our surprise and delight when earlier in this year we saw that a week has become available. So we grabbed it!
I can remember staying in one of the three cottages in the courtyard around 1990 so I had an idea of what to expect in terms of amenities and fishing etc but this cottage has been renovated and decorated with great attention to detail making it feel less a rental and more like using someone’s home for a week.
The kitchen is very well provided for and the living space is very comfortable. It is worth mentioning that in very hot weather, and we were very lucky all week, the living space of the cottage remains very cool. So you can leave the Doors open to the garden to catch the breeze and then if it gets a little too hot, go and sit in the sitting room to cool down whilst still watching the river flow by.
Garden furniture is comfortable and pads are provided. The garden is a real sun spot but there is natural shade provided by trees as well as the sun umbrella.
The bedrooms are very pleasant and the bed was surprisingly comfortable, it felt as though the mattress was quite new. A great use of space by adding a toilet to the main bedroom.
We enjoyed a very comfortable and relaxing week and although only a few paces from the pub where boats moor up this was peaceful at night and watching novice pilots trying to moor a large berth was added fun.
For bird lovers, we had daily visits from a heron in the morning who would walk around the garden, lots of smaller birds too as well as visits from ducks, geese and swans all with their young.
Fishing was good with well sized perch bream and roach. Pikes patrol the margins making it interesting when bringing in a smaller fish, sometimes the pike get it sometimes you get the fish and sometimes you get the fish and the pike. Very good area for pike fishing!
Also, if you want to explore the river you can hire a boat direct from the owners as there is a wee motor boat moored up.
This cottage is super and we highly recommend this. It really will meet all needs and expectations and probably surpass them.
As for Horning, been coming here for 30 years. It is a wonderful village that really can provide for all of your needs but is also very well placed in terms of larger towns, the city and the coast to explore. The people are so friendly. Just love Horning.
This cottage is everything you could ask for and is equipped with everything you need. It is very comfortable and maintained to a high standard. Sitting on the river edge it offers a relaxed setting for fishing or just watching the boats (and ducks) go by.
Two Hoots is like a home from home. Spotlessly clean, well decorated and most importantly, very comfortable.
All three bedrooms are bright and airy. The bed linen and towels supplied were whiter than white!
Its location behind the Chinese Takeaway and very close to the New Inn pub is not to be taken as a negative. Neither encroached on our enjoyment of the weekend.
The property has an idyllic riverside location and is a beautiful place to sit and relax and watch the world go by.
Horning has everything you need within easy walking distance including pubs, restaurants and smaller eating places, along with the usual village shop. Most places are dog friendly.
We had a lovely few days at Two Hoots and would happily stay there again without any hesitation.
Lovely cottage with amenities to suit all. Very cosy and comfortable with super river frontage to sit and watch the world go by or fish from dawn to dusk. 3 good pubs within walking distance all serving good food and a lovely Chinese takeaway also within walking distance. Highly recommend this cottage, a great place to relax and unwind. The owners have ensured all needs are catered for. Well done.
