“Cosy!”
Reviewed 13 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Beautiful cottage, so nicely decorated and spotlessly clean!
The owner, David, is very welcoming and polite! Gave us places to visit, and recommendations on food around the area.

Local food - chip shop, The Cock Inn and the italian restaurant are all recommended. Quite literally on your doorstop!

Would recommend to all!

“Fantastic place to stay! Recommend it for anyone that wants a quiet break away”
Reviewed 26 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Christmas Cottage is the perfect place to go for a few days break or a week or two holiday. David ( The owner ) is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet!The Cottages are so well equipped you don't need to take anything with you, there is secure parking, the shop is within walking distance as is the Fish & Chip shop & the Pub. Christmas Cottage is one of the nicest places I have stayed in, I cannot praise it enough! To be honest if you find fault with this Cottage you are hard to please. Trust me book it and enjoy it!! We did and it was wonderful!! We will be back next year David -1 & + 1 hopefully for a couple of weeks. I will recommend your Hospitality to anyone, your a good guy.

“Beautiful cottage, perfectly situated in a lovely village”
Reviewed 28 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The cottage was lovely. Very clean and with every amenity you could require. The beds were very comfortable and there was even a choice of feather or synthetic pillow on the beds.
We ate out at the village chip shop one night and at the Italian restaurant a few yards away on another. Both provided excellent value for money food.
We did not try the Jacuzzi as the weather was very cold!
We love walking and there were plenty of beautiful walk just a few minutes away by car.
All-in-all we had a fantastic break and would heartily recommend Christmas cottage.

“Classy”
Reviewed 3 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Stayed at this beautiful cottage for a few nights at Easter.It has everything you need for a short break or a week,and is clean and very well presented by the owners.There is private parking right outside and there is a pub,Italian Restuarant and a chip shop within a 2-5 minute stroll,perfect for not having to drive.There has been a hot tub added recently which we used which was perfect after a long days walk.
There is so much to do in this area within half an hours drive,especially if you like walking,you won't be disappointed.
Also the owner is on hand to offer any help that you require about the cottage or the area and nothing is too much trouble.
