Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Since a car crash, swimming is best exercise for me, but have avoided as local municipal baths are a nightmare for me. This was booked as a treat for my recent birthday and it was truly magnificent. Great facilities, completely private. It was just me and my wife. Felt like royalty for the whole hour. Have already booked again for January. Can’t wait.

My family booked this place as a treat for my birthday. Gorgeous pool in a countryside location attached to a picturesque farm. After being shown around by a friendly member of staff we were left to enjoy the beautiful, relaxing warm pool and small but excellent sauna. Seating areas around pool to relax and a decorative poolside shower to cool off after sauna. Modern changing facilities, shower area. Lovely attention to detail everywhere and the 2 Buddha sculptures add to the spa retreat feel. Would recommend!

My fiancé and I have just relocated back to England after being in Italy for 4 years and it's been very stressful. So as a treat for his birthday I booked the cottage! It's the best thing I could have done for us! Peaceful and quiet, the pool on your doorstep and tennis with an amazing view! It was a home from home and everything you need to live very comfortably is there waiting. Amy the host was fab and there was little luxuries waiting for us on arrival which was a lovely touch! I can't recommend it enough! The cottage states no wifi which wasn't a problem, all television channels and a range of up to date DVD's are on hand and the phone signal is great. There's even a little local pub a short walk away if you can't be bothered to cook!! Thank you for a brilliant stay.

Visited late March.. it's beautiful..and just left to it no one bothers you... it is spotless and really good quality bathroom ECT. My only concern when I come back October it will be with family ie mum Dad ECT and there is only 1 changing room so if your going with friends you would have to taje it in turns to get changed

Hosted my daughters mermaid birthday party here, what a fantastic time they had, we hired a mermaid to come along. A lovely venue, spotlessly clean, pool was a nice temperature, not too cold, not too warm. The relaxing beds/chairs were bathed in natural sunlight, (not that we got to use them whilst supervising the girls in the water). If you are considering booking here, consider no more, book it! You will not be disappointed, we can’t wait to return.

wonderful setting with deer and rabbits spotted on the driveway. Grandchildren loved it and very reasonable rates. Will definitely be visiting again. The pool room and sauna are brilliant, so nice to have a private pool.
