We recently stayed in this wonderful cottage. There was everything we could possible want at the cottage. A great pool, bikes, table tennis, barbecue, not to mention the welcome pack waiting for us when we arrived. Felicity had also left us a bottle of champagne, some flowers and chocolates as it was our 35th wedding anniversary the day we arrived....

Management response:

Thank you! We are so pleased that you enjoyed everything. The mother Partridge is still walking her youngsters to the pond to drink every evening and they have all survived so far. For others reading this review, it may help to know that we do all sorts of special occasion extras, too many to include in the main advertisement -...

The cottage is exceptionally well equipped with everything that you could need. We took...

Management response:

Thank you to both of you and we wish you a really good second stay in September! Felicity and Chris

The instructions on how to get to this cottage were comprehensive and easy to follow and we arrived without any problems at all. We travelled from Brittany where we had stayed in a particularly lovely cottage, so I was a bit nervous that this one may not be of the same standard. I needn't have worried. We drove through the...
