“A Little Gem”
Reviewed 20 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Honeysuckle Cottage is a beautiful little cottage with everything you need for your stay, it is very well equipped and is of a very high standard. The cottage is beautifully decorated and is exceptionally clean and modern, the kitchen has all the 'mod cons', including a dishwasher. It is set in very well kept grounds, very relaxing.
Barry is a terrific host and nothing is too much trouble for him......highly recommended!

“A fantastic place to stay!”
Reviewed 30 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Me and my partner stayed at wisteria cottage (one of the cottages Barry owns) over the bank holiday weekend. The cottage itself was of a very high standard, the pictures didnt do it justice! Barry was a lovely host, very accommodating and helpful.

The surroundings were beautiful with lots of places to go nearby, plus a local pub.

We had a wonderful time here and would definitely visit again and recommend to friends.

“Thanks Barry”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

I've spent four nights in Barry's cottage and it was such a good time. Rooms are very comfortable, well-decorated and clean. Barry is a very nice person who really cares about his clients. Don't hesitate, especially if you're a young couple looking for romantic place

“tranquil setting and high quality accommodation”
Reviewed 31 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We have just returned from an extremely pleasant weekend break. Everything in the cottage is done with quality in mind. The setting is peaceful, with lots of excellent walking within easy range. The Inn at Farnborough, two miles away, is highly regarded and dinner there was relaxed and enjoyable.

Barry is an excellent host and it is clearly important to him that his guests enjoy their break. He was extremely apologetic for a power cut caused by a storm,( not really within his control!) and delayed his own weekend away for a night to ensure that we were not inconvenienced.

“Perfect Valentines getaway”
Reviewed 10 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Me and my partner decided to book Honeysuckle cottage on Valentines day as it is only down the road from where my partner lives. The experience was fantastic and the service to match. We arrived about 7:00 in the evening and were greeted with a warm welcome from the host Barry, he was very accommodating and friendly, he showed us into the cottage and there was a lovely red rose on the bed accompanied with some little chocolates (Lindt) which happen to be my girlfriends favorite so this definitely scored me Brownie points as I think she thought I had arranged this! however Barry had taken the time to arrange this nice little touch by himself, needless to say I did not say anything to my partner and accepted full credit (I hope she doesn't read this!)

I had actually rang ahead before our arrival to discuss eating out as there is a local pub just down the road, he actually then asked me what my partners favorite food was, I told him "Fajitas"

After we had unpacked our bags and enjoyed our chocolates Barry came over and escorted us into the main building which is where he actually lives (its about 30 or 40 feet away from the actual cottages so you still benefit from you own privacy) and then led us into the kitchen/dining area where amazingly he had prepared us Fajitas and a lovely little table to eat at. It was like being in a restaurant without all the extra people and noise, it was very romantic, Barry had even offered us a bottle of wine compliments of the house. He then left us in peace to enjoy the meal, after we had finished the main we then had ice cream as well which was perfect as my girlfriend also loves ice cream!

Originally we had only planned to stay the night for a romantic break, however we felt so overwhelmed with the service and effort Barry had gone to to make the night enjoyable and one to remember that we actually asked if the cottage was free for another night, luckily it was so we booked to stay the following night as well. This gave us time the next day to sleep in (sleep the wine off) and then enjoy the village and surroundings. The setting is perfect and romantic the village is very quaint and has a lovely pub which we had lunch at the following day. The service here was also very good and we were greeted very warmly by the land lord.

All in all a fantastic little break, which turned out to be a lot more than we had expected, we are looking to return very soon and enjoy the peaceful settings and fantastic hospitality. I would thoroughly recommend to couples alike
