“Most magical weekend”
Reviewed April 23, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Booked The Cottage Beyond for my friends Hen Weekend. From the start Christine and Alan were so helpful, nothing was too much for them to do. There were 13 of us that stayed. The house was amazing, super clean and fully equipped with everything we needed. Not a single fault. My friend had the most relaxing, fun hen weekend and we are very grateful for all your efforts in making it so special for her. We ordered food from Asda which was delivered and kindly put away by Christine and Alan. We will definitely be returning x thanks again.

So pleased you had a magical weekend - we thought you were magical guests, you left TCB beautifully. Thanks from the changeover crew for carb boost at coffee time! Would welcome you back at anytime. Have a great wedding and we look forward to seeing you all again soon. Christine

“Absolutely Perfect Place for a Special Celebratory Occasion!”
Reviewed March 23, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

My husband very generously booked this for me and our immediate family for my 50th Birthday in February half term, so there were 13 of us altogether ages from 10 - to 85 years. The Cottage was extremely comfortable and well equipped for this number of people and everything was really well thought out. The rooms were lovely and clean along with the linen and towels, and the kitchen was brilliant for cooking and clearing up after meals for a large number. There are some lovely walks on the farmland - we went up to the woods in the snow one morning and it was beautiful. We didn't need to venture out as we had the amazing Spa which was fantastic to get us all together and it did - it was a magical week with family I hope we can do it again sometime soon - Tips - most supermarkets will deliver, we had Sainsbury's, and one of the Indian's in Wellington delivered and it wasn't bad at all we had it twice to save cooking! I would definitely recommend if you want a family get together it was perfect - thank you so much!

We are so glad you had such a special birthday and you all enjoyed your time at TCB. All the major supermarkets deliver here, as do Ocardo and Cook. "Show Spice" in Wellington is the Indian which happily delivers to us - wonderful to get a delivered in meal to make life easy. Let's hope your husband feels you need another treat again soon! Thank you for taking the time to leave a review - greatly appreciated.

“A wonderful family time break.”
Reviewed March 21, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We spent 4 nights here with our two daughters, their husbands and our two young grandchildren. From the moment we arrived we were made very welcome. The house was spotless and very well equipped. The spa hall with its pool, hot tub and sauna was brilliant and we spent a lot of time here. The grandchildren loved it. There are lots of walks around the farm and surrounding areas and if you are lucky the owners two dogs, Pepsi and Elbie will tag along also and be your unofficial guides. We had a wonderful time and would recommend it 100%.

“Free flow fun!”
Reviewed December 1, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

A great house set in beautiful gardens with glorious views. The house has terrific open space to enable the family (13 of us, ages 4 to 70 including 5 small boys) to interact and enjoy each other plus quiet areas if required. I don't remember any quiet! Also a brilliant central kitchen for sociable cooking of vast meals! We made full use of the lovely well equipped pool and hot tub with games of water volleyball and woggle battles, of the games room, feeding the pigs, collecting eggs from the hens. Stick throwing for Pepsi and Elbie provided hours of fun, plus the bird table and lovely walks .. and chipping ice off the roundabout on the first frosty morning. Our only sadness is that we didn't have longer as there remained a long list of To Dos, Christine and Alan make brilliant suggestions and are perfect hosts.

“Wonderful place for relaxation and celebrating with family and friends”
Reviewed October 3, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

person found this review helpful

The Cottage Beyond is a perfect place to get off the world, relax and enjoy. 7 friends meeting up to celebrate 3 ladies significant birthdays. Enjoyed walks across the fields and woods with Pepsi and Elba the owners dogs. Great fun feeding Apple, Blackberry and the other pigs with food scraps each day. The chickens provided our eggs for breakfast - part of the welcome pack also a yummy chocolate cake.
The indoor pool, jacuzzi and sauna provided relaxation and time to rejuvenate.
The cottage is well equipped with everything you need and more. We booked a local chef to cook one evening (Gayla Stewart) recommended by The Cottage she is excellent, delicious food. Also, pampering afternoon recommended (Sue Hartman).
Christine and Alan (owners) are delightful and extremely welcoming, very attentive when required, without being obtrusive.
Planning to visit again.

We have just returned from a wonderful family week at this delightful home. The lovely cottage layout has been well thought out, with special touches everywhere! It is clean and very well equipped - having everything you would need for a stress free stay. Within the garden there is a beautiful swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, outdoor games and entertainment for all ages. Wonderful surroundings with lovely country walks, forest adventures, pigs and hens. Perfect for our grandchildren too! Thank you so much - we hope to be back one day.
