“Lovely spacious character cottage with lots of amenities”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2011 for a stay in July 2011

We have just got back from a lovely relaxing stay at Turnip House. The cottage is very spacious with large living room & wood-burning stove, kitchen/ dining area, two double bedrooms (1 en-suite four-poster) and two twin rooms, utility area, two fridges, separate bathroom with roll-top bath. We had two patio areas with table and chairs and a BBQ.

The cottage is one of 3/4 on a working farm, with lovely views over the surrounding hills. One of the highlights for me was being surrounded by the lovely animals, especially the horses and chickens. We fed the pigs and horses daily and collected fresh eggs from the chickens. It was surprisingly very peaceful. There is also two games rooms with pool table, table tennis, darts, table football etc. They are also building a large indoor badminton/ tennis courts at the moment (though we were not in the slightest disturbed by the noise). There is a 2 mile circular walk within the farm grounds, which was very pleasant.

Mobile phone reception is not great in this area, but there is a pay phone within the cottage if needed.

As we were staying for a family birthday, we booked a function room at the Royal Oak pub in Cardington for a meal one evening (25 people), which is a 2 mile walk from the cottage. The meal and service were both very good and we were allowed to decorate the room and bring our own cake for desert.

Overall I cannot recommend the cottage highly enough and would love to come back for another visit, the only slight negative is that there were a few cobwebs in the property that perhaps are difficult for the cleaners to reach because of the high ceilings. We also found that some noise came through the walls from next door into the first floor double bedroom.
