“Simply delightful - Perfect”
Reviewed August 14, 2013 for a stay in August 2013
person found this review helpful

Raphaela and Steve made us very welcome as soon as we arrived at the cottage, providing us a guided tour of the facilities and grounds. My partner and I chose Robin as our little retreat before he travelled to Australia. Robin provided wonderfully peaceful surroundings which allowed us to spend much needed quality time together. The self-contained cottage is well equipped and finished to a high standard. Wine and fruit on arrival was a lovely touch.
If privacy and tranquility are what you are looking for, Robin is the place for you. If we were to offer any tips for improving it, they would be minor things such as the following: a larger sofa in the lounge area - my partner is 6ft 1in tall, so it was a bit of a squeeze for the two of us. In addition, the duvets were two single duvets which much to my partners annoyance, I managed to win the duvet battle each night and he was left with none. Finally, wifi connectivity was sporadic - I blame this on the thick walls of the cottage, other than these minors pointts, it was perfect and simply delightful.
Overall, a truly memorable stay and I cannot thank Steve and Raphaela enough. I highly recommend this beautiful little holiday home for two. I really do not want to leave.
