It was a fantastic short vacation. The hosts were exceptionally hospitable. Definitely going back. Food was terrific. Spotless clean. My hubby and I have allergies to dust and pollens but we did not suffer from any allergic reactions while staying in the cottage. Tge view was breathtaking. :)

We absolutely loved our stay in Olinda Cottage. Tastefully decorated and attention to detail first class. The breakfast provided is excellent, fresh cob loaf, free range eggs, baked beans, tomatoes, cereal, juice, milk and a variety of spreads what more could one want. The hot tub was wonderful and was the perfect end to a our day. Port and chocolates provided to top off your day if you wish to indulge 😉 The garden is well maintained and well worth exploring. Thank you Lesley & Michael for sharing your property with us.

Thank you Lesley for another great stay at Arcadia. I came here as a solo traveller last year and returned this year for another relaxing weekend, this time with a family member. The weather was not very welcoming, but the cottages were, and the host as well! We stayed in the Olinda Cottage and the Treehouse Cottage. Olinda Cottage is very cosy with a full kitchen and a hot tub, while Treehouse Cottage has a magnificent view of the garden. Thank you so much for all the small touches that made it feel like home. I'll be back again to see the seasons change and have a hearty breakfast in the garden.

We had 3 nights and enjoyed every moment. Plenty of breakfast supplies. Loved the hot tub and wood fire...Lesley was very friendly and helpful with directions and places of interest to visit. Bed nice and comfortable and cottage very cosy.

Very disappointed with the owners of Arcadia Cottages; we accidentally booked the wrong room and tried to correct it and were charged, without our permission, to change rooms. While initially they were friendly, once we had paid the deposit they were no longer hospitable. I was hoping to find a regular holiday get away but after dealing with the owners, I would not recommend this place.

Response from Michael R, Manager at Arcadia Cottages
Responded 23 May 2018
Not correct. This customer booked a discounted package and accepted the risk of 'no cancellations, no changes'. Despite this we did allow them concessions to alter their booking to another cottage and alternate dates. We did charge them to change rooms because they wanted a more expensive cottage We did our best to assist this customer and went beyond our normal terms to help them. The claims made by this person are untrue and in no way reflect the extent to which we tried to assist them.
