This is a fantastic place to stay, if I could give it 6 stars I would. We stayed in the golden suite for 2 nights for my partner's birthday. Shona was very flexible and gave us a complimentary tea, coffee, milk and chocolates. The room was absolutely amazing and looks better than the photos. Shona advised us on places to...

This gem of a hideaway was perfect for my solo trip to get away from it all, yet it was in close proximity to all amenities and shops. Ideal! Koala Cottage gave me the serenity I needed with that stamp of luxury you just don't find very often nowadays. Friendly and welcoming owners, my beautiful Safire Suit and wonderfully cooked...

The village itself provided much to see, with local walking opportunities, a modal village and three excellent pubs, with different eating experiences. The Taverners was...

After the fizz fizzled out of the Christmas Season, my daughter and I stayed at Koala Cottage as a pick me up. Well Koala Cottage certainly ticked all the boxes. The room was luxurious & sumptuous; the bathroom alone earns a five star rating, and the facilities amazing. We spent rather a long time in the Jacuzzi drinking prosecco (didn’t...

Our stay at Koala Cottage was truly amazing . The decor was lovely and tasteful. Host Shona was very hospitable. Her impeccable taste and eye for detail enhanced the experience.

We stayed for three nights in the Sapphire Suite, it was spacious, very comfortable, spotlessly clean and peaceful. The excellent Breakfast was cooked to order with fresh ingredients some of which were local. Hospitality exceeded expectation. Our booking was made last minute and booking dinner for New Year Eve was proving difficult. Our Host concerned we would not find anywhere...
