This is our third visit here, again a thoroughly great time, the cottages are cosy and well equipped. The fishing was fantastic and we caught loads. Paul and Niki are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Already booking for another visit next year!!!

This was our first time here and we enjoyed it so much, have just re-booked for September. We stayed for a week mid March this year and absolutely loved it. The weather wasn't kind, but that's only to be expected and didn't put a 'dampener' on our experience. We were a party of four adults and stayed in the cider...

Spent a week at the cottages fishing and chilling. Weather fantastic Paul must have ordered it special. Rootstore cottage ideal for two and the secluded fishing lakes provided good sport. Lots of bream, rudd, tench and carp. Paul and NickI very friendly and helpful. Close to the coast for sightseeing looking forward to returning next year.

Wow…..just WOW! Where do you begin with such a hidden gem, I almost feel guilty for the review as I'd like to keep this discovery to myself. My wife and I stayed here for a week.

We stayed at Cranford Cottages for a week from the 25 June. The only fault (if you call it a fault) is that we were in the Haywain and found the living room/kitchen to be too small otherwise everything was good. When we arrived the cottage was very clean and amenities were good. There was everything you need for self...

I was a bit worried when my husband booked this fishing holiday, I was worried the cottage might be a bit too basic and manly! No need, the cottage was extremely clean, and everything was of a good quality. There were only twin beds, but they are comfy, and I didn't get woken up at silly'o'clock when my husband went...
