“Wonderful And Peaceful”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

When we go away for a few days we prefer to stay somewhere off the beaten path, somewhere scenic, peaceful, relaxing, and ideally with a hot tub to relax in after a day of sightseeing and walking. In Lime Cottage we found all of this and more.

It's so nice to wake up in the morning, to look out of the window and see a garden filled with butterflies, and to eat breakfast outside, with a view over the fields, watching the birds flying overhead.

The cottage is well equipped, with a decent kitchen, cooker with oven, dishwasher, microwave and toaster. The bathroom/wet-room is a good size, with a lovely digital electric shower, ensuring the water temperature is always right. The bedroom has plenty of storage and a very comfortable king size bed.

The main room even has a good selection of books, some DVD's, and the television has a built in DVD-player too. There is even fast broadband, so you can keep in touch while on holiday, as well as research places to visit.

And last but not least, the hot tub, which is so nice to come home to and to relax in after a day out exploring.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and hope to come back here again.

“Fabulous little piece of heaven!”

This gorgeous little cottage is within the grounds of the owners house and a larger cottage is close by.
The cottage is exactly as advertised. Very good quality furnishings, linens and fixtures.
The hot tub was just a delight to come back to after a long day. You would need a car to get to the cottage as it's off the beaten track.
We don't have a bad word to say about Lime Cottage, it was perfect. Tony, the owner, greeted us with Molly and Fudge (the small dogs) when we arrived and made sure everything was right for us. We had access to the paddocks and walked the grounds watching the buzzards and other birds as we went.
How we miss the peace and quiet!
