“Superb Cottage”
Reviewed 12 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Absoluteley superb cottage.
Beautiful comfortable lounges and excellent kitchen/diner.
To use the term "fully equipped" does not do justice to this cottage. The kitchen really does have everything that you could want.
Lots of extra touches such as loo rolls, tea cloths, dishwasher tablets..we could go on!
As other reviewers have noted, the stairs are steep and winding (as you might expect in an old cottage) but we are both around 70 and had no problems.
An added bonus for us was that the garden is secure for our small dog and we could let her out without worrying.
It is easily the best cottage that we have ever stayed in and thoroughly reccommended.
Excellent pub (Olde Red Lion) a short stroll over the village green.

“Beautiful cottage & location with only minor niggles”
Reviewed 4 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The location and cottage is fantastic, great for a long weekend away like we did, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Cottage was very clean and tidy and had no issues with the house itself which is why the score is unaffected.

My problems were with letting agent and owner in the form of contact. We returned the signed documents as requested, but had to chase them up and send to a separate address to ensure they had it before getting the key code. Then after paying by Paypal originally, my deposit was returned by cheque in the post but had not even been signed. I then left then tried ringing the owner and left them a message but they never replied so I had to chase the agent about wanting a refund through Paypal as getting to a bank is awkward for me. I was told they would ask the owner, but never replied and on chasing the matter again I was told they had posted another cheque and appeared they had not even asked the owner about refunding with Paypal.

Very minor problems I am sure you would agree, hence it not effecting my recommendation of the cottage or score and I would stay there again. However, I just felt a little drained on return on trying to sort out the deposit issue.

Sincere apologies for your receipt of an unsigned cheque - a batch was signed and unfortunately this one was missed. A new cheque was sent out within 3 days (2 days being a weekend). I confirm we are now in the process of reviewing our payment systems to ensure a smoother return. Looking forward to your return visit in the near future.

“Beautiful cottage in a picturesque English village setting”
Reviewed 18 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This is a charming cottage with plenty of space for our family of two adults, 2 children and a dog.
The village is small but has two pubs that provide a wide range of food, both very welcoming. The green hosts the largest may pole I have seen, Stunning. Tesco’s and a selection of take-aways are a few mins away by car.
Everything in the cottage is well stocked, and the fixtures and fittings are of a high quality. The beds are amazingly comfortable, and we slept really well.
It is everything you imagine an English cottage to be. Warm and welcoming with, steep twisting stairs, low beamed ceilings, old wooden latched doors and log fires, Plus a few hidden extras like a large bathroom, down stairs toilet and a small sauna. The garden is secluded and well maintained, great for summer BBQs.
There are signs of damp by the fire place, but the cottage feels dry, and a few dusty corners, but these are very minor points and did not spoil our stay.
This is a great find! We booked a return trip as soon as we arrived home. I think this says everything!

“A tranquil haven”
Reviewed 27 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Stayed in White Horse Cottage for 2 days last week for a pre christmas break with family,The cottage is large and comfortable with a peaceful homely feeling. It is set in a stunning little village (Wellow) and also has every amenity you could possibly ask for. There are 2 pubs across the road and Sherwood forest and Nottingham a short drive away.A place where you really feel you would love to go back to.

“BRILLIANT !!!!”
Reviewed 20 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The Cottage is very clean and homely.
The kitchen/diner is large and has everything you need for a self catering stay, fridge freezer, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine.
It has two sitting rooms one with a log burner,sofas,TV and DVD player with plenty of DVD,s to choose from. The second sitting room has an open fire, sofas and a DAB radio with a good selection of books to read,
The downstairs bathroom has also got a sauna in it which worked really well.
The three bedrooms are a good size and the beds are very comfortable.
Upstairs bathroom has a shower and free standing bath and toilet.
We stayed in October and needed the heating on and it was so efficient the whole cottage was lovely and warm.
We would certainly recommend this cottage, and the Old Red Lion just across the road who make you feel so welcome.
