“This is the best cottage I have ever stay in”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This is a beautiful cottage and is as everything inside that you could ever wish for. The gardens are very dog friendly and my two springer spaniels Tilly and Martha spent many an hour playing and lying in the sun.
The leaflets in the cottage for things to do are the best we have ever come across in a cottage. Big thanks to Lynne and Mark the owners. We will definitely be returning.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 22 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Absolutely fantastic little cottage. One of the best well equipped, cosy, clean , comfortable cottages I have ever stayed in. Mark and Lynne have a real gem there and should be very proud of what they have. Seriously could not fault one thing!!! Beautiful garden and friendly neighbours. Thank you for making our honeymoon perfect.

“Wonderful cottage. Our 'home from home' for a week. Excellent”
Reviewed 21 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Poppy Cottage is a real credit to its owners. Attention to detail was astounding. The cottage has a real cosy and welcoming atmosphere to it. The whole cottage was really well equipped. All those things you usually forget, were there. Everything was very clean and well maintained. With 2 adults and a 2 year old we all felt truly spoilt. Stair gates and high chair etc. were all provided. My son (Harry) called it 'Harry's house' for the week. He loved the garden. We will definitely be recommending 'Poppy Cottage' to everyone!!!!

“WONDERFUL COSY COTTAGE WITH EXTRA LUXURIES”
Reviewed 28 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

One of the best cottages we have stayed in, the furniture was very comfortable and cosy. A lot of thought has gone into providing all the necessary items, plus lots more luxuries that we have not found in any other cottage Not only was there a bottle of wine, but also chocolates, eggs, milk, jam, tea, coffee. There was also boxes of tissues in every room, bathroom luxuries such as flannels, body lotion, soap wash and many more.

Poppy Cottage has got to rate as one of the best and most well equipped of all of those we have stayed in. Perfect for those who want to get away from it all. The added little extras were so well done, and very much appreciated !
