“Lovely Cottage with an open fire - unforgettable”
Reviewed July 5, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

It has been a dreamed long weekend at Castleton Cottage. The cottage is just lovely! Amazing location, wonderful fireplace, warm and welcoming owners. The cottage was super clean and nicely decorated. We receive complimentary wood to the fireplace and groceries (incl, tea, coffee, sugar, milk, cereal and any other essential you can think of).

It was so nice that for first two day we just stayed in to relax and rest in the comfortable living room in front of the fireplace. There are plenty of resources to use, games, cards, tv, dvds and big book full of information on what to do and see in the local area. And there is plenty to see and do.

The local area is just stunning and so quiet. We did horse riding in the forest – unforgettable experience. It was lovely escape from a busy city and kindness of the owners and local people made our holiday. The owners were extremely helpful and welcomed us very warmly, giving us full introduction to the place and local area. They responded to any questions promptly and were available for advise at all times.

We are planning to go back but this time for longer! Thank you so much to Sandra and her husband!

Ps. I was impressed about how well organised was the place and prepare for hosting parents with children (all the children accessories including bed and chairs are available)

“Left feeling bitter”
Reviewed June 9, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Nice cottage ideally located, though apparent friendliness of hostess marred by false accusation of concealing damage to kitchen bar stool one week after vacating property.

After cleaning and hoovering throughout we invited the host to inspect the property on our departure but they declined.

On our arrival we found food in the fridge that was two years beyond its use by date including rancid butter, mouldy cottage cheese and sausages.

In the guest booklet were feedback forms left by previous guests which were not particularly positive.

Property details on the website were deceptive stating that power was included, this is not the case and a meter needed constant feeding. It also states there is adequate parking for two cars I found it difficult to park our modest Astra.
