“A fantastic spacious cottage with everything you could need”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have just returned from a lovely weekend break at the cottage. It is a spacious cottage with everything you could possible need on a self catering break. All the rooms are well furnished and done to a very high standard.
We went in summer and the weather was beautiful and we sat in the lovely big garden having a BBQ but I'm sure it would be as fabulous in the colder months having under floor heating and a log burner in the lounge.
Richard and Wendy live next door and what wonderful hosts they were. Not intruding at all but on hand to answer any questions or provide advice on the area.
I would definitely recommend this wonderful cottage to anyone.

Hi - we have just realised that we have not responded to this kind review - thank you very much. Also, although you did not comment on the bath water, this is an opportunity to say that the central heating engineers have serviced the system & the problem is now resolved. Best wishes - Wendy & Richard

“Beautiful house”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This is a beautiful house in a lovely quiet location but within easy reach of many attractions.
There was plenty of space for our extended family and the garden was great for all of us as well as the dog! The furnishings are immaculate and decor lends itself to a restful break.
It was somewhat irritating not to have had enough hot water (nowhere near enough to fill the lovely bath) but we made do with showers.
All in all though, a lovely break for all ages.

“Delightful Cottage and a Warm Welcome”
Reviewed 23 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We stayed in The Cottage for Half Term and found it equipped and furnished to an exceptionally high standard. On arrival we received a kind and warm welcome from the owners.

The location of The Cottage is excellent and was ideal for exploring the Sherwood Forest and local attractions with children, grandparents and perhaps a pet with the owner's permission. We only wished we could have stayed longer in the accommodation and explored a little more! We are sure to return, and I would highly recommend The Cottage to others without hesitation.

Thank you again to the owners for a wonderful stay.

“Beautiful Cottage for Perfect Holiday”
Reviewed 5 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

The Cottage at Walesby is a beautifully renovated property that is one of the best equipped holiday rentals we have ever stayed in. Warm, comfortable and very clean, the cottage provides a wonderful base to investigate the surrounding attractions while it's own charm also makes 'staying in' very attractive too!! Before arriving, the owners Richard and Wendy Holloway ensured everything we might need after a long haul flight from Australia was provided. Their consideration and welcome is reflected in the style of property they have created. The whole family sincerely hopes that we can return one day.

“Beautiful, comfortable, well-updated cottage”
Reviewed 20 March 2012 for a stay in March 2012

The Cottage is a beautiful Victorian cottage that has been carefully modernised. It is very well appointed, with top-notch fittings, attention to detail and a sympathy to the original features. It was warm, comfortable, bright and extrmely clean. The rooms are all spacious and well-equipped with a layout that worked great for a group of friends but would work just as well for a family.

Richard and Wendy were really hospitable and a joy to deal with. Having stayed in a few properties around the country, this cottage really stood out. I have nothing negative to say, and hope to be back!
