Reviewed 2 August 2014

Stayed in Cider press cottage. Good accomodation that was clean and spacious. Beautiful surrounding countryside that was accessible for long dog walks. Owners Nikki and Paul very friendly and happy to offer local info/advice. I was not fishing but found plenty of local interests to keep myself occupied. My husband enjoyed many hours of fishing from carp in the main pond to an array of smaller fish up to 5lb in the middle pool. A really good place for those who are either very serious about fishing or those who just like a bit of fun. I have missed my morning stroll around the grounds and would recommend as a dog friendly holiday. Our Border Terrier has sulked since leaving yesterday.

This was my 6th visit to Cranford and was all that I've come to expect and more. I stayed in the Cider Press cottage and found it clean, domfortable and very well equipped. My visit was predominantly a fishing trip; I caught a variety of fish in the well managed lakes, which sit amongst beautiful peaceful grounds. My thanks to Niki, Paul and Archie who are the perfect hosts.

Have just spent a wonderful week of fishing once again. Each time we return it gets better & more addictive. Our cottage was spotless, the fish were biting & Niki, Paul & Archie are such a lovely family. The picnic area with the hammocks (tried & tested) was tranquil & a very relaxing way to spend time chilling out with a glass of wine. This little piece of paradise gets lovelier every time we visit. We are returning in August, we just can't get enough of the place.
Thank you for your great hospitality.
Love from Jill & Petexxx

Room Tip: Cottages facing the lake would be easier to access fishing for somebody with mobility difficulties

Spent another great week at Cranford Cottages, our second visit to this lovely place. Paul and Niki were as ever the perfect hosts. The cottages are clean, spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The fishing was superb, the lakes are really looking good and the fish are in great condition. The perfect place to relax and unwind, there are also lots of places to visit if you are not into the fishing, Cranford makes a perfect base, especially with it's own pub on site!!
We will definitely return in the future. Rae & Toby

We have just spent a superb few days at the lakes. We loved every minute. Cranford is a piece of heaven on earth! The lakes and surroundings are just beautiful, so peaceful and relaxing; the fishing is wonderful; the cottages very well cared for and furnished (with very comfy beds and lovely pillows!) and a pub 7 steps from our cottage door! What more could you ask for?
Thank you to Paul and Nikki for a fantastic few days

After having just returned from Cranford Cottages I feel we need to post our thoughts. The setting is stunning and beautifully managed in all aspects. Paul and Nikki are superb hosts and very helpful with fishing knowledge which resulted in memorable days by the three lakes. Accommodation is again excellent being spacious and well equipped. We will be returning at the earliest opportunity to take in both more of the first class angling and generally enjoy the setting and location. Very good honest pub grub was had at the Inn. Thanks again to Paul and Nikki for a wonderful experience at Cranford and hope to see you again soon, Paul, Lynda, Francesca and Mum.
