“Lovely, peaceful retreat”
Reviewed February 10, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Lovely little studio, with brilliant use of space. Feels so spacious inside and was lovely and warm. Great base to explore the forest, and definitely would recommend a car to get the most out of the stay. We just wish we could have stayed longer!

“Best holiday stay ever”
Reviewed August 22, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The views are fantastic. We arrived on a rainy night, and the fog in distance on top of the mountain was simply beautiful. The next a few days were sunny, we therefore enjoyed a different scenery. We spent the first a few days to enjoy the surrounding area and Little Owl is in a good location, easy to reach to forest and towns and villages.

The studio is beautifully presented and very clean and has everything we need. The bed is very very comfy. All other things are clearly of good quality. There were even presents in the fridge which we didn't expect. I loved the chocolate. Thank you.

I'd recommend Little Owl to everyone and we will definitely come back.

“Another great, relaxing stay at Little Owl.”
Reviewed July 18, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Our second stay at Little Owl and didn't disappoint us. Very relaxing! The peace and quiet is amazing. Did plenty of walks with our dog who loves the place. Looking forward to our next visit to see in the New Year.

“Lovely Break”
Reviewed February 27, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Little Owl is a lovely peaceful retreat, I booked it last minute so that we could get away for a couple of days and were not dissapointed. The studio has every thing you need and although very cold outside it was extremely warm inside. Bed very comfortable and nice tv and added benefit of wi fi.Parts of the ceiling were low but once you remembered it was fine. Some lovely walks although because of the time of year we stuck to the main walk ways due to the mud and taking our Bulldog with us (who enjoyed herself immensley) We will be booking for a week in the summer months to take advantage of the lovely walks in the surrounding area.
