“Great stay for a birthday weekend!”
Reviewed 20 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We had a really good weekend away, the bedrooms were all really warm and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipt with all the things you could need. the house was very warm and the heating being timed was a good idea. the forest was only a few minutes away and the boys all went for a jog, we all had fun with the ping pong table and when there was nothing to do it was a great game. the tv in the main living room was great and had loads of channels not to mention all the board games and the piano to keep us all occupied!!! There were also shops and a chip shop not far from the cottage which we had a nice walk to or a short drive. The only bad thing was the bins because there was only one bin in the kitchen we wasn't sure if there was recycling and we got confused. but other than that the house was lovely and we would definitely come again!

Liked best: Location, warmth and provisions.
Liked least: The house could do with a bit of TLC, huge cobwebs in hallway, downstairs loo & sink clean but dado rail & door V dusty, upstairs shower not the best but suffices and one of the beds appeared to slope - could be floors!.
