“Special romantic retreat”
Reviewed March 9, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

My wife and I stayed here for a long weekend (we only got back two days ago!). We had searched for hours on the internet looking for just the right place and when we saw this knew we'd found the one.
Communication with the owner was great and once we arrived we were very, very happy with our choice.
The setting is perfect, nestled in beautiful countryside, really quiet and off the beaten track.
The cabin itself was small but cosy and with just the two of us and the dog we found it just right. The cabin was well appointed and really warm. The only gripe was there was no where to hang stuff except coats on the coat rack, but this is down to the small size, so we lived out of the suitcase. But there are drawers to use too and after all we were only there for the weekend. It did not spoil the stay!
We enjoyed several hot tub sessions each day, with several of those accompanied by the obligatory bottle(s) of champagne! The place is so private and so peaceful, once we'd been out to explore the area we simply headed back for a drink, some reading and hot tubbing!
The welcome package on arrival was a really nice and unexpected bonus!
Debbie the owner passed by to make sure we were ok and she was very welcoming without being intrusive to our weekend.
We saw a heron at the pond each day and red kites circling ahead.
All in all, I would give it 6 stars if I could. We'll definitely come again and have recommended this to all our friends and colleagues.
