Our short break in winter at Elworth Farmhouse Cottage to celebrate a special occasion more than fulfilled our expectations. We arrived on a freezing February day but received a very warm welcome from the owner, Chris, who had already lit the woodburning stove. With the glow from this, plus the autumn leaf lights strung across the beam of the inglenook fireplace, the cottage looked enchanting.
Likes: Wonderful cosy thatched cottage with oak beams; organic welcome pack of breakfast items (including an unexpected bottle of wine for us to celebrate our special occasion - gratefully received!); super kitchen with all modern appliances; bedroom under the eaves with very comfortable king size bed plus new ensuite facility; watching the birds feed from the table across the garden whilst having our breakfast; relaxing in the evening watching satellite TV on a good size flat screen television. The walking is superb - the countryside around the cottage is stunning, with views out to sea from the hill above the hamlet and it's a lovely walk into Abbotsbury village for a pub lunch.
Dislikes: That we had only booked to stay for a couple of nights! We've booked to stay again in early summer to enjoy the gardens (which looked inviting even in February), swimming pool and jacuzzi.
