We stayed in Handley Cottage for seven nights and had a wonderful time. The cottage is clean and comfortable with a good sized bathroom upstairs and a strong shower on the ground floor.
The kitchen has everything you could need, with a table for four people to enjoy meals. If the weather had been nicer, we would have had breakfast on the bijou front patio's stylish benches and table.
Dan and Katherine are welcoming and thoughtful hosts. They provided a basket of fruit and delicious handmade chocolate as we arrived! Later, Dan popped in with a freshly baked loaf of bread and an another day we arrived back to some of Katherine's delicious banana loaf.
Children can play freely on the swing set and trampoline, and there's a fishing lake in the woods. We didn't go fishing, but I ran laps around the lake most days, which was wonderful. There's also a handy games room for rainy days or evenings.
We would definitely return and would recommend it to anyone wanting to get away from it all for a bit. I could feel the stresses of London life falling away as soon as we arrived.
