“The perfect getaway with the perfect hosts!”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Absolutely perfect in every way.
Couldn't have wished for a better English country getaway... What a beautiful part of the world.
Dorothy and John are the perfect Hosts... They made us feel really welcome and it felt like we'd known them for years.
Perfect accommodation... all mod cons...
Can't wait to go back (we re-booked before we even left)
A BIG THANKS... Highly Recommended !!!

“Stunning Cottage and Friendly Owner”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My son and I booked this cottage for the night after a trip to Alton Towers. My only regret is we couldn't stay for longer. The cottage and the grounds are beautiful and immaculate. Dorothy left us fresh milk in the fridge and there were chocolates and fruit on our arrival. I have stayed in many places but this was definatley one of the best. I look forward to returning but for longer next time. I have already recommended this cottage to friends and family.

“Idyllic - worth every penny”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

I stayed here with my husband for an Alton towers trip and was pleasantly surprised from the start. The views all around the property were stunning and the property itself is very nicely done with beautiful gardens. The owners are also lovely! We could find no faults with this place. Loved it!!!

“Stunning scenery, Beautiful both inside and out”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed for just a single night but left wishing we could have moved in permanently. We booked the room as we were visiting Alton Towers the next morning but were so overwhelmed by the quality both inside and out it was a dissapointment to leave the next morning. Little touches, like fresh milk in the fridge, tea and sugar, luxourious towels, sun-loungers in the garden surrounded by beautiful flowers. Patio doors at the foot of the bed that open out to table and chairs set up on cobblestone which gave us a wonderful setting for an early morning brekfast, a candle lit veranda at the rear next to what looked like a natural spring. We couldnt have been happier and will certainly have to visit again for a longer spell. Thank you.
