Flo's Cottage is a perfect place to spend a relaxing holiday. Everything was provided to make our stay very comfortable. The garden was a wonderful bonus. We visited a number of the local attractions and found the Workhouse in Southwell very interesting. Thank you John and Heather for a comfortable stay.

We are very pleased that you found Flo's Cottage a perfect and comfortable place to stay. Your review is very much appreciated. John and Heather
