Reviewed 4 weeks ago for a stay in July 2017

I really enjoyed my extended two month stay at Alfie's cottage. Really a comfortable cottage with beautiful views of the nature reserve. A truly tranquil setting. The hosts, Jen & Charlie are really friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend the cottage.

Management response:

Thanks for the feedback Brian. You were such a relaxed and easy guest we loved having you here to stay.

Most enjoyable stay. We used to live in the neighbourhood many years ago, so it was sort of being back home. The cottage is very centrally located but a car is essential.

Management response:

Thanks Marc and Michele for your review. We loved having you to stay and was so special seeing you relive your memories of the area.

Me with my wife spend three weeks Alfie Cottage. The accommodation was brilliant for us. Our hosteess Jen and our host Charlie were really nice and helpful. In no case, can not forget about the housekeeper Melody, she was invaluable to us. Greetings from the cold in Finland, Kari and Fluffy.

Management response:

Thank you so much for the lovely review. Melody has read it too and says thank you so much for the kind words - it means so much that her efforts are appreciated. We hope to see you again - sending some sunshine your way!
