I am so glad you enjoyed your week at Little Terraces. Not all cottages come with the added bonus of a free leg work out rewarded by fabulous views and sunsets! It was no trouble to return your belongings, I am pleased you are now reunited. Hopefully you will return one day, and maybe the river Avon will produce a big fish for you! Sue

“Absolutely perfect!!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

I visited the cottage along with my two dogs for a long weekend at the end of June on a last minute booking and could not have been more impressed. The cottage was spotless, clean and tidy! Everything you could have needed was there and all to a high standard! Sue was extremely helpful and went above and beyond to make sure I enjoyed my stay and had everything I needed! The best bit though was without doubt the amazing top terrace! It is so peaceful and tranquil - the perfect place to relax! My parents came down for lunch and we sat up there, wine in hand having lunch overlooking the amazing scenery, was perfect! I will no doubt be back!!

“Great cottage, far exceeded expectations”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Littles Terraces was a fantastic and cosy cottage. Although named 'little' we found it to be perfectly sized for a couple, lots of space throughout but yet very cosy.

Sue has done a great job making this cottage feel like home. I've visited numerous cottages throughout the UK but found this cottage to be so well equipped with absolutely everything you could ever need made available in all areas of the cottage including the kitchen, bedroom, terrace area etc. This really did make the place feel like home and a huge bonus being that everything provided was of extremely high quality and branded so there was certainly a luxury feel there, particularly the super soft and fluffy towels!

The cottage is very well laid out and furnished to a very high standard with extra touches virtually everywhere you look and the terrace was one of the major highlights. It provides amazing views throughout, is secluded from neighbours and is a fantastic place to soak up the sun or have a BBQ.

Just a short walk away are a handful of shops including a Co-Op which is just further up and a five minute walk brings you to breathtaking and peaceful meadows where the River Avon passes through.

Thank you for your lovely comments on Little Terraces. I am delighted you felt so at home. The walk across the water meadows is lovely and changes with the seasons. I hope to welcome you back to enjoy more walks, perhaps along the Avon Valley path and through the New Forest. Sue
