“30th Birthday party weekend”
Reviewed 30 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

We rented Durstone Cottages for a joint 30th birthday party for 22 people (aged mid 20's to mid 30's, no children). Having spoken to Sarah before booking, she explained that the location was ideal for our party due to being quite secluded and little risk of upsetting neighbors with the noise.

When we arrived, we were met by Sarah, who explained some basic rules and asked us for a small cash security deposit, which was no problem.

The weekend couldn't have gone better. Playing our music and partying into the wee hours was no problem. There was also a nice village pub about 15 minutes walk away which helped us clear our fuzzy heads on Saturday afternoon.

The bedrooms were plenty big enough for all of us and the common areas were large enough so that we never felt cramped. Bathrooms and other amenity areas were generally clean and the games room was a nice welcome break.

I would happily visit again!

“Perfect for a family gathering”
Reviewed 27 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Agree with other reviewers, great facilities, great location, yes follow owners instructions on how to get there. The only thing that I would of liked would of been great to have more grass area for the toddlers to play. Great bedding and towels and equipment re kitchen. Local village is lovely, even got to see the scarecrow parade.

“Wonderful venue for big family get together”
Reviewed 12 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Stayed here for a family get together. 15 adults plus teenagers, toddlers and a baby.
Owner could not have been more helpful to make our stay problem free.
Particularly loved the large dining area easily accessible from the two kitchens.
Also lovely walks straight from the cottage without needing to go near a road.
Whole house was clean and bed linen was thick and felt luxurious.
Kitchens had every pot, pan and implement you could need.
It is hard to find but if you follow the owners instructions you won't go wrong.
The only think I would add is a couple of doormats so people can wipe their feet on entry.
We had a wonderful time - thoroughly recommended
(Also recommend Lins Wok for a chinese takeaway :)

“Recommended for relaxing family occasion for all ages”
Reviewed 26 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Situated at the end of a long farm track , the location ,in the heart of farmland, ensures that there are no neighbours to disturb . Our family group of 22 covered four generations , The cottage was clean and the beds comfortable . There was ample space in a long dining area to seat all for meals .
The fact that the furniture was not high specification was more relaxing for a party that included a number of small children .The two open fires were well used and the inclusive supply of kindling and logs was much appreciated . The owners were helpful and accommodating.We made good use of the Games Room.No hesitation in recommending.
