We have just spent the Easter weekend at Poppy Cottage. From the moment we arrived to a welcome cup of tea and biscuits and a log fire in the lounge to the time we left, we were treated like old friends! Our room was warm and beds comfortable. The dressing gowns were very welcome on such a cold weekend and with a kettle in our room and tea and coffee whenever we wanted in the guest dining room, we were very much "at home".
Breakfast was fantastic and available at our convenience, we just had to let them know the night before of the time we would like to eat. The Kellogg's Breakfast Award is well-deserved, the porridge the best I have had anywhere and the cooked breakfast and our son's breakfast pancake were the highlight of our day!
The Swan pub just 5 mins walk away served excellent food with huge portions and was just what we needed after a day of walking/sightseeing or whatever.
We had the Poppy Room which is the largest room and had ample space for the 3 of us, with a large sofa bed and king-size bed. The shower was good and powerful and the bathroom in common with the rest of the house, spotlessly clean.
As you can tell from this review, I would thoroughly recommend Poppy Cottage and thank Sally and Steve for their hospitality.
