“Wonderful house with beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed 2 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013
people found this review helpful

We stayed at the house with 6 adults and two children for a week. When we arrived we had a good nose around and our welcome gifts included a bottle of wine and some much needed milk for a brew! They provide a couple of jugs which you can take to the local pub up the road to fill with your favourite real ale which we found to be a really nice touch (and we used!).

The house was light, spacious and well presented throughout. The bedrooms are generous in size and have plenty of storage. Sky tv is also available in all the bedrooms. We stayed in. He bedroom with the balcony which also has a couple of chairs to sit and watch the view. The beds were all comfortable and the bedding was cosy.

The kitchen was well stocked with pans, utensils and equipment. I brought a few items from home but didn't need them in the end. The only downside I would say would be storage, there were only two cupboards which we could fill with our shopping and with 8 people staying, this was a bit of a squeeze but we made do. There is a large fridge freezer with plenty of room.

We had a couple of minor issues during our stay but the owner resolved them very quickly with no problems and we always had a point of contact.

The terrace has a good size BBQ which we used a few times and has a large 8 sweater table and sun lounges. The garden is a decent size, we took a badminton set and there was plenty of room. There is also a gate to the field which you can walk across to go to the lake for a swim. I would advise to walk round to the right as there are a lot of weeds as you walk in directly in front of the house. There are some pretty big fish in the lake so don't be surprised if you see them on the surface around you as it is a fishing lake.

You can park two cars at the house and if you need further parking, there is a children's play area 5mins walk up the road with plenty of free parking. I would recommend reversing your vehicles into the driveway of the house as it makes getting out much easier and less stressful on the clutch!

This was our first cottage holiday and we were thoroughly impressed with it and will definitely look to do so again in the future.
