This was my second stay at The cottage Beyond and if possible even better than the first! Christine and Alan are superb hosts, the house and surroundings are both amazing. The spa is as good as you'd find in a high class resort,the cottage facilities are well thought out and everything you could possibly need is provided. The bedrooms and en suit bathrooms are beautifully stylish and the standard of cleanliness is definitely 5*****. Can't wait to come back.

“An Amazing House ”
Reviewed 21 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

My family and I recently stayed at theCottage Beyond and had the most wonderful time. The far exceeded our expectations and the whole family are discussing when we should book again . The facilities are top notch, with the pool and sauna adding the cherry on the cake.

Whether it is a special occasion or just a relaxing holiday you are looking for you will not be disappointed.

An amazing place to stay and definitely top of our list for our next family holiday in the UK.

“Exceeded all my expectations”
Reviewed 14 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

I have just celebrated my 80th birthday at this wonderful location, our group ranged in age from 3 months to 80 years and all were catered for. From the moment we were welcomed by the lovely Christine ( with home-made cake) we could find no faults. Everything we could wish for was provided and all to the highest standard. This was going to be a 'one off' but we are already planning to return.

“Already looking forward to our next visit in 2017”
Reviewed 14 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We all had the best time, a real countryside experience away from urban living. Just what was needed. Particularly enjoyed the owl noises at night and various animal noises through the day. The fresh spring water from the tap was a huge bonus and we all left feeling refreshed and energized.

“How soon can we return?”
Reviewed 13 November 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed with our extended family in September and it was incredible. The house had everything you could possibly want and more. Words can't describe how brilliant the swimming complex was. Being able to explore the farm was a huge added bonus - lots of walks and added extras, such as fairy doors, for the children to enjoy. Throughly deserves its five star gold award - it simply doesn't do justice to how amazing the property is.

“Simply Wonderful!”
Reviewed 11 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

This is the second time my husband and I and our little dog have stayed here and we returned for obvious reasons! The cottage is simply wonderful!
The owners, Christine and Alan are so friendly and make you feel at ease and at home from the moment you arrive, even their two gorgeous and very well behaved dogs welcomed us as we drove down the driveway. They have even supplied folders full of information about the cottage to cover every aspect encase you are unsure of anything, local restaurants, pubs and where to go for some amazing countryside walks, they have simply thought of everything so you don't have to.
The house is full with everything you could possibly need from different types of plates, cutlery, glassware, dishwasher and instant boiling water tap. We only ever take a bit of food shopping with us for the stay and there is a local shop and Waitrose near by for extra supplies. Although there is the snug full of DVDs and SKY tv we hardly use them as the gardens are so beautiful you will want to enjoy the peace and quiet. We love exploring the grounds, visiting the pigs and chickens every morning (you can even collect some eggs if you wish). The bedrooms are cosy with comfortable beds and each en suite is supplied with soft fluffy towels. Throughout the cottage is underfloor heating and a log fire which is exactly what you want for a November stay.
As if you couldn't make this place any better you then have your own private indoor swimming pool in a separate building at the bottom of the garden!! Never mind a gold award this place needs a Platinum Award encrusted with diamonds!! :)
Thank you again for an amazing stay, can't wait to return next year and already planning our next visit!

“Amazing, incredible.....”
Reviewed 10 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Incredible house! John was so friendly on arrival, especially so as we were late and it was cold and dark. He gave us the full tour, and left us feeling very at home. The facility's were amazing. Best we have ever experienced. The decor and layout of the house made for a very comfortable stay. We felt, as a group of 13, that the owners have thought of everything. From the well stocked cupboards of plates and drawers full of cutlery, and an abundance of glasses and mugs, to the placement of the bird feeding table and tasteful painting and decorations around the house. The children loved the Snug, the pigs, the pool, the football table....we all loved everything. The Cottage Beyond and her wonderful owners, fully deserve the Gold award they recently received. We would love to come back. One day, we will! Thank you doesn't seem enough.
