Holt Cottage B&B

Reviewed October 8, 2009

What a delight! This charming cottage, separate from the main house, offers a wonderful space to spend a romantic weekend, a week’s holiday, or just a nice place to spend the night. There is a lovely sitting area with comfy sofa, chairs, TV, coffee making facilities and small fridge, a pretty bedroom and good size bathroom with a fine selection of amenities. Downstairs is another twin bedroom and bathroom – a great place for a family.

Annabel and Richard have furnished this suite with a lovely country touch, and should be well pleased with what they have to offer their guests.
We were warmly greeted, and presented with chocolates and delicious fresh scones right out of the oven. A full breakfast, which included their own eggs, was delicious, and accompanied by pleasant conversation. What more could one ask. It is no wonder they are recommended by Alistair Sawday’s Special Places to Stay. It is indeed a very special place, with very special hosts.

I have stayed in many different establishments in the area and Holt Cottage is without doubt the best on every level. Wonderfully wide bed, 2 bathrooms, spotless and pristine to satisfy the most obsessive clean-freak. Annabel is a fabulous cook and uses only the absolute best produce. Really exceptional on every level. Unreservedly recommended as outstanding value as well as outstanding value for money.

I have just spent a weekend at Holt Cottage and just have to recommend it - it's so much more than a B&B!

The roomy accommodation is in a separate annexe to the main house so you can stay there and maintain an element of independence. The furnishings are of the highest quality and far excelled my expectations. Having stayed in many B&B's I am yet to write a review but Holt Cottage is just too good not to share.

There are two bedrooms in a small cottage type conversion, each with their own bathrooms. The shared sitting room comes complete with a flatscreen television and DVD player - this is not only the ideal accomodation for a couple looking to get away from it all but would also be brilliant for a family.

Annabel and Richard are brilliant hosts, discreet but welcoming and they serve a brilliant breakfast. The pub and restaurant reccomendations they made were just right and the pub in Corton Denham is well worth a visit.
