We stayed for 3 nights in January 2014 and we highly recommend this cottage. We stayed in the "Rascal" cottage, which was beautifully designed, with an incredibly comfortable bed, all the amenities you could want in the kitchen, lovely swathes of lavender just outside the door and even your own BBQ.
I think what sets Burn Cottage apart though, is all the attention to detail that Rose and Phil have put into the place. From the very friendly greeting, to the fresh walnuts from their own tree, the absolutely delightful gardens, the use of bikes available, the picnic blankets and picnic hamper available to lounge around on their lovely lawns, the petanque court.
We would highly recommend anyone visiting the Cromwell area to use this as your base, and try to stay at least 3 nights (as we did) to get the maximum relaxation out of it!
