“Remarkable ”
Reviewed January 18, 2017 for a stay in February 2016

Surprise birthday treat! The husband treated me to a night away and what a beautiful treat. Absolutely lovely little cottage in the heart of groby. Quirky and comfortable, Home from home, with all the essentials and even those items that you may have forgot to pack.The finish on this cottage is superb.
This cottage is also situated next to a lovely local village pub, that serves great fresh food, a variety of ales, super gin bar and friendly attentive staff.

Overall would Definitely recommend, and would love to return, absolutely fantastic. Thankyou for an enjoyable stay

“Birthday retreat”
Reviewed December 31, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Stayed in this this wonderfully appointed cottage in the centre of the village of Groby.
A very cosy property perfectly located near to all local amenities, yet you still get a very private feel once inside the premises.
Great pub adjacent provides good food and refreshments.

5+ Stars.

Close to all major routes too.

Thank you for the experience, can't wait to return.

What a find! i am totally thrilled that we had the opportunity to stay in this beautiful cottage. I booked it for 1 night for my husbands birthday as we were in the area and thought it would be a nice change to a hotel, I only wished we could have stayed longer. The cottage is owned by the pub next door and we had the friendliest greeting from the manager and all the staff. We also ate here and had a really good meal so worth a visit. The cottage has everything you need and has been decorated beautifully. Thank you so much for our stay and we would defiantly return. :)

“Excellent Cottage, a home from home.”
Reviewed January 8, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

A fantastic cottage. Top notch specifications. A real Blend of old Thatched cottage with lovely modern amenities such as, Smart TV, great shower and fully equipped kitchen.

Brain was excellent, being linked with the Stamford Arms means you can relax in both the cottage and the Pub.
