“Perfect”
Reviewed December 16, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Just returning from a weeks stay at "Glen Cottage" and had an absolutely perfect time. The photos are extremely accurate, the owners very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble whilst giving you all the space you need. The actual cottage is ideal, fittted extremely well and everything of a very high and elegant standard.

Highly recommended, many thanks and look forward to seeing you in the New Year!

Take care, James

“Fantastic”
Reviewed November 4, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Stayed on a short break this week and have to say what a fantastic little cottage this is. Not far from the M1 with dedicated parking spaces and in a terrific little village with a cracking pub.

I was on my own but my wife would have loved the roll top bath in the bedroom in particular.

The fixtures and fittings are to a very high standard and there are flat screen TV's and Blue Ray DVD players in the lounge and the bedroom. All lovely.

Great hosts too - Mike and Jacqui made me very welcome - so what more can you ask for!

“Not to be missed”
Reviewed October 1, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Hidden away in the delightful village of Castle Bytham, this recently converted limestone barn is an absolute dream. It offers modern facilities, all on one level, which even the most discerning of travellers would find hard to beat. It would appeal to both young and old.
The hosts, Jacqui and Mike, are two of the friendliest and most helpful people you could wish to meet.
My overall score would be ten out of ten!

“Comfortable cottage”
Reviewed September 24, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This is a small, cosy cottage, equipped with everything you need. We were surprised how warm it was in September, without any heating on. The bed was particularly comfy - I liked the duvet so much I've bought one the same for myself! Wifi worked well. Good location for visiting pretty, unspoilt villages in lovely countryside, and several places of historical interest.
Castle Bytham is a quiet village: its shop closed 2 years ago so the nearest store is 4 miles away. Only one of the two pubs was open during our stay, the beer was good and food OK but basic. There was an inconvenient plumbing problem throughout our stay: the owner compensated us and promised it would be resolved when we left, so we felt he'd done his best.

Thank you for your review. Apologies for the plumbing problem. It's now completely fixed - I totally bypassed the old pipework so the cistern now fills very quickly! Oh, we've also upgraded our broadband so it is now much quicker in the cottage as well!

“Highly recommend!”
Reviewed September 21, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My stay at Glen Cottage was a wonderful experience, not just because it is a warm, welcoming space but because Jacqui and Mike are amazingly generous and accommodating hosts. The cottage itself is clean and well stocked and very comfortable and you will be hard pressed to find a more beautiful village in the U.K.
I was very warmly welcomed and Mike makes sure that any questions you have are fully answered as he gives you a tour of the cottage. This is my second stay here and I hope to see beautiful Castle Bytham along with Mike and Jacqui next year! Thanks again for much for everything!!

“Beautiful place”
Reviewed September 11, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Stayed here for a weekend on my own,left hubby and kiddies at home. What a treat it was to stay here, such a lovely cottage, the owners have carefully thought about everything, very comfortable bed, the bath was lush, I certainly recharged my batteries here, would highly recommend staying here, whether it be alone, a couples romantic get away or a family break, I for one cannot wait to return :-)

“Charming hosts in wonderful accomodation”
Reviewed September 3, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have been fortunate enough to travel to a number of international destinations quite frequently over the years (we are Australians), with the majority of the travel being in the U.K..On the basis of this past experience, I can say that we have never felt more welcome than we did when we experienced Jacqui & Mike's hospitality. We were treated to coffee, cake & conversation in the morning, & ( more importantly) wine , savouries,& more conversation in the twilight. We felt more like visiting friends than paying guests. When one has been travelling for weeks, & has experienced the difficulties that often accompany travel, this type of welcome lifts ones spirits. The cottage itself is wonderful, as is the delightful villiage. Our vist to Castle Bytham was the highlight of our tour (this is primarily due to the ministrations of Jacqui & Mike). I cannot recommend the holiday venue highly enough, a wonderful experience.
