“Truly memorable”
Reviewed September 9, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed at Pond Cottage for a week in August and found it delightful. The cottage itself is beautiful inside and out, the setting is amazing and it's owners are just the most wonderfully welcoming & kind hosts who are quite happy to let you wander about the farm as you please. They even allowed us to get involved in sheep herding which was a real treat, especially for our children.

The cottage was well equipped with everything you could need, including fresh eggs and jam left for us on arrival. John & Renate have put together a very useful folder of information about the area and things to do, including details of John's extensive arboretum. Ducks and geese roam the property and were always there to welcome us back from a day out. Both bedrooms are very comfortable and beautifully renovated with exposed beams, and both have en suite showers.

We had a wonderful experience at Pond Cottage and cannot fault it at all. We would not hesitate in recommending this property to anyone looking to escape to the country.

“Great experience in comfortable cottage”
Reviewed June 15, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We were met by John who gave us a guided tour of Pond Cottage. Well equipped and we did not want for any comforts. Outlook was serene, with ducks, geese and sheep and the location was near the village -couple of miles on single track road. Our hosts were the most friendly and helpful we have ever encountered, and ensured that we enjoyed our stay. All appliances were working -stove, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. Would love to return -but as we are Australians may be difficult!

“Relaxing break away from it all!”
Reviewed March 28, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

I visited pond cottage with my partner, cousin and her partner. We had booked it for easter weekend and my birthday. We couldn't have been happier, the cottage was beautiful and relaxing! We were greeted by John who showed us around. The cottage overlooks a beautiful pond and we were greeted daily by the ducks! The weather wasn't great but we didn't care because we had the lovely log fire to keep us warm!The farm is beautiful and we spent time wandering around the fields and John's arboretum which I'm sure is even more impressive in summer! Also John's homemade cider is a must!
