I would love to give this five stars but a few things just let it down a little.
The staff at the pub were not expecting us and did not tell us how anything worked in the property or about the check out process. It was also quite noisy, I initially thought the noise was a bin man, but it went on for some time and we think it was actually barrels being delivered to the pub? It was rather loud and we were unable to fall back asleep.
Negative points aside, as they would not stop us from recommending or staying here again, the cottage was beautiful and very cosy and the facilities were great. The location is was easy to get to and the food and atmosphere at the pub was really good. (We got a 20% discount for staying in the cottage which was a nice surprise!)
Thank you for the stay.
The cottage met all of our expectations and was ideally located for us to see our family who live locally. A delight to stay in such a historic building.
I spent 3 nights at this beautiful cottage, first night with mum and sister (maid of honour) and 2nd/3rd night with my [New!] Husband!! It was absolutely amazing and just perfect for a short stay.
The extra amenities that Brian and Hazel pepper around the property are brill, they even went the extra mile for mum by going out of their way to provide an extra fold out bed.
We'd all like to thank you for our stay and again say what a wonderful place it is.
We had 2 lovely nights here. A cute cottage with everything you would need. Brian was brilliant too. Thanks for looking after us.
This is a great property! Unique, quirky, cute, quiet and so very comfortable with everything we needed.
We stayed for 6 nights and really enjoyed our time in Groby. The owners of the cottage were so helpful and did everything they could to make our holiday just perfect. The Stamford Arms Pub next door has the best food and the staff provide excellent friendly service. The village is still very country yet the city of Leicester is only 4 miles away. Wish we'd been able to stay longer. Thank you Brian and David for making our stay so enjoyable!
We had a wonderful stay at this delightful cottage. It has so much traditional character, but also has been modernised inside with a beautiful kitchen and bathroom. It was comfortable and furnished to a high standard, with lots of little added details like milk, wine and biscuits available (with an honesty box for donations). A perfect little haven!
We spent four days at this pretty little cottage, which is full of character but has all mod cons. It was very well appointed and equipped with everything we needed for our stay, except perhaps for a clothes horse but I'm sure that Brian would have sourced one for us had we asked, as he was very helpful and just on the other end of the phone.
The wonderful bathroom deserves a special mention with its large and easy-to-use shower, non-slip flooring and plentiful supply of towels. The vanity unit was also a joy.
I loved the little courtyard garden with its herb patch outside the front door and wish the weather had been better so that we could have sat outside and enjoyed it.
Having the Stamford Arms just round the corner was also a bonus - such a welcoming and friendly place where we enjoyed two lovely meals.
