“Lovely lovely time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2011

My husband and I were drawn to this region because of the forest and really wanting to get away somewhere special for our 1st year anniversary. Upon arrival we were welcomed with all the personal touches to make you feel like you were staying with family/friends. Elaine has a lovely property and when inside you feel like it's you and the meadows and that's it. There is s a swimming pool to use, lovely laws to lounge on in the sun and the local pub 2 minutes up the road. I highly recommend the outdoor candle lit spa package for a lovely way to celebrate or just be romantic.

Inside the cottage you have everything to really feel at home and gorgeous exposed beams to feel in the country. Clean, tidy and definitely exceeds expectations with the personal touches.

A place we will definitely return to...
Thanks Elaine for making our stay so memorable.

Self-catering cottage in attractive location. Size and location really suited our needs.
Only drawbacks were not having wi-fi (although it was possible to log on at the owner's house) and not having own washing machine (although again it was accessible for an additional cost).

Thank you for your review. Yes, we are in a very handy position to get out and about exploring this beautiful part of the countryside. Just to clarify - guests requiring internet access are happy to pop across the garden to the main residence and any emergency laundry requirements on short break stays are dealt with free of charge if requested (particularly if there are young children staying). There is however, a charge for using the laundry facilities for stays of one week or more when bedding and towels etc. would need laundering.

Stayed here as part of anniversary weekend away.
Had a lovely, comfortable stay and was well looked after.
Very reasonablly priced for B&B with a pool (though weren't told until we arrived that the pool was an extra £5 PP per hour) but had the pool to ourselves and it made for a relaxing swim (/float) before heading out to dinner.
Elaine was very helpful and recommended / booked a local pub - The Glasshouse (great pub).
Didnt get breakfast but were told about that prior to the stay - Premier Inn down the road sorted that. I believe most people do get breakfast though.

Overall thorougly recommended.

We had a wonderful stay at May Hill View and Elaine's hospitality was very welcome. The breakfast that was prepared for us was fresh and included a selection of choices. We were impressed with the size of the accomodation and enjoyed having the extra space to sit and relax in the front room.
