We recently stayed at de Vaux and, having stayed at other cottages marketed by Premier Cottages were expecting great things. From first contact with Sue (& then Sophie) we felt welcomed and looked forward to the short break. Once again the cottage was of the highest quality and everything so carefully thought of. What a treat! The key safes are an excellent idea too, making everything so easy. Beautiful weather in this gorgeous part of the country was a bonus but with such a cosy base, the fascinating Priory just next door and the superb tea-room and gift shop for further indulgence, whatever the weather we would have had a good time. These cottages are not cheap but the quality, warm welcome and attention to detail make them great value and well worth a visit.
