“Beautiful, amazing cottage”
Reviewed September 11, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Stayed here for a weekend with the girls and absolutely loved it! The cottage is stunning, hot tub amazing and the views and peace and quiet where wonderful! Will definitely be back again. Only downside, no outside speakers so had to sing amongst ourselves. God help the neighbours!! ;-))

“Little piece of Heaven”
Reviewed August 13, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I booked this cottage as a surprise mini Birthday treat for my partner and myself in August. It was everything and more than we could have hoped for, beautiful quiet location, idilic surroundings. The cottage itself was amazing, had everything we needed and Hot tub was a definite added bonus. Thank you Sally and Rob for allowing us to share in what I can only describe as your " little piece of heaven". We cannot wait to Come back. X

“ABSOLUTELY FAB! Can't wait to go back :-)”
Reviewed August 6, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

My husband booked the cottage for our 2nd wedding anniversary and wow it's gorgeous inside and out the whole cottage it's lovely. It has a very high spec and lots of attention to detail. We couldn't have asked for more. The views from the hot hub are lovely and the animals you can see around are a nice touch too. Wish we had booked longer totally loved our stay and can't wait to return!
Nice bonus too is there's no wifi and phone signal is low which ii thought was great no mobile phones for 2 whole days!! :-)

Thanks again Mr and Mrs Gillett :-)
