A most perfect cottage in a wonderful setting. The hostess was very thoughtful and ensured that we had everything we needed.

“Lovely stay at the Old Post Office.”
Reviewed 25 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We stayed for four nights as a family of 6 and fitted comfortably in the cottage. The rooms are all a good size and immaculately presented. Really beautiful infact. My only disappointment was there wasn't a travel cot available which I would expect in a house catered for families so we had to bring our own but there was a high chair and stair gate which made all the difference. Downstairs the kitchen and tv room suited us as was a good size. The kitchen is again in good condition with top notch appliances and equipment which were easy to use. My only comment on this would be there wasn't much room to store any dry food we bought but we managed all the same. Lovely location which we a re familiar with. Unfortunately the weather wasn't on our side but we managed a couple of bike rides and just about a walk in storm Doris! But the cottage was so nice it was fine to spend a day there entertaining family from Leicester. Evenings were spent snuggled up watching DVDs. Another point to add is that the owner was accommodating of our dog staying which was great. 5 star rating well deserved.

“Wonderful cottage”
Reviewed 6 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Spacious, warm and lovely. Very well appointed. It's rare to find this quality in a holiday rental. Very clean. The owner left us essentials for breakfast and very thoughtfully decorated it with a Christmas tree, etc.
