“A lovely comfortable and spacious cottage”

We had a very lovely weekend in Gable Cottage. Louise went to a lot of trouble to ensure we were comfortable, warm and cosy. She provided a great spread of food as a welcome and we were made very welcome. The beds were particularly comfortable and we have been to a lot of cottages. Only downside is having just one bathroom and it is downstairs but one does get used to this, would be a problem with more people. We would like to return in summer when the roses are flowering. Thank you to Lou for a lovely stay. Highly recommended.

“Absolutely Fabulous”
Reviewed July 21, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

From the moment we arrived we knew we had found a fantastic place to stay, we were greeted by Louise who was lovely and so accommodating. Fresh flowers, home made scones and some food to get us started. The cottage had everything we needed, the rooms were beautifully appointed, the shepherds hut was delightful, the location perfect with a short stroll to the Pub and a 5 or 10 minute drive to more pubs and the supermarket. One thing we didn't like was that we didn't stay longer.....faultless Thank you Louise
