“It's exactly as shown on the brochure - marvellous”
Reviewed October 1, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Excellent communication with the owners,
( despite some troubles with Trip Advisor's emailing system ),
Property lovely and clean, warm and welcoming,
Welcome pack of scones, jam and butter, milk and brewing up facilities,
Own private access, whilst being in the grounds of the owners for security,,
TV/DVD/Freeview with 3 controllers took some getting used to !!,
Whole property is compact, but perfectly workable, e.g.small setee,
but 6ft. Super King / 2 Singles bed with plenty of spcae,
All electric, so easy to get used to,
plus the added bonus of a log burning stove, which really "belts the heat out",
Lovely setting, with nice gardens and good views of Dunning's scenery.
And it's own WiFi, which is handy for checking out places to visit and eat.
A great mix of the past ( Doocot 1725 ), and present ( Outbuilding conversion with WiFi ).

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

Liked best: The setting and layout, would have been nice to relax on the decking in the sun ( but we went Sep/Oct so didn't get the chance.
Liked least: Small setee

“Relaxing and peaceful holiday”
Reviewed September 23, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Hilary and Bruce really helped us to have very quiet and relaxing holidays, the Doocot is very peaceful, with its big and enormous trees and with its garden. I tell you if you're thinking about staying there, don't hesitate, you'll be happy, we're sure of it. Thank you Hilary and Bruce, we loved your Doocot.

“Perfect for a couple's getaway!”

We stayed at the Doocot for the first half of our Honeymoon, and it was exactly what we wanted. The cottage and the grounds it is in are beautiful, and the large windows on the property give wonderful views. The owners made every effort to make us feel welcome with lots of lovely little touches including scones, jam and eggs from the chickens in the garden.

Dunning is a very quiet village without much happening, but we'd definitely recommend it for a couple who just want to get away and spend some time together.

The only negative was a pretty uncomfortable sofa, but worth a visit nonetheless!
