We had a lovely stay thank you. Lavender Cottage was just what we wanted. Very comfortable and so peaceful. It would be good if you could indicated the shampoo in the shower as we weren't sure whether it was shampoo or body wash. We will be back as its a great place to recharge those batteries.

Stayed early November 2016. Two mature couples in Rose Cottage. Beautiful location, excellent accommodation. Breakfast was cooked and served in the cottage at a very reasonable cost. Only drawback was the approach track, which was a bit rough for about 1/4 of a mile before reaching the property (Vast) when the approach was paved. However, this is completely compensated for...

Thank you so much to Tony and Ann for a wonderful stay. We spent a restful rainy weekend in Lavender Cottage, beautifully decorated with delicate attention to detail to the theme. We experienced an incredible storm on our first evening but felt safe, cosy and dry. The breakfast was generous (super crispy potatoes yum) and served in our cottage at...

Wow Tony's done it again. As usual every opportunity is taken to ensure that we were comfortable. Due to unavailability of cottages my son's had to live out of the resort. Ton allowed them to spend all the time with us. We've built a good relationship over the years and we will always come back at every opportunity we have....

My last stay at Lions River Country cottages was my 8th stay at the cottages. It is really like home from home. Clean, well equipped and the most friendly owners. Over the years I count them under my dearest friends. Looking forward to my next stay. Thank you dear Tony and Ann

We decide to spend our first night of our honeymoon at Lions River Country Cottages, it was a great choice. Far enough from the hustle and bustle of Nottingham Road area but a quick drive if that's where you wanted to be. Ann and Tony were great hosts. They left us to ourselves but were available if we required anything....

I loved the country feel from the location and interior décor of the cottage. The neatness of the bathroom and kitchen, comfort of the beds and hot showers, space within the cottage is more than enough for two people and the huge yard allows for more adventures than we could fit into one weekend. The location is central to most...
