Perfect retreat. We were there during Hurricane Barney which was whipping through the trees at 80mph outside. Listening to the wind howling while curled up in front of the log fire was magic. The owners are two of the nicest people you will ever meet. We chose this particular cottage because it was listed as dog friendly, fortunately there were no signs of dog in the cottage at all, it was immaculate in every way!
What a lovely property. The place was in beautiful surroundings. It was very peaceful there, very well equipped, very clean and comfortable. We didn't want to leave. It is just perfect. Would highly recommend this place.
A beautiful location that was very peaceful and relaxing. Wonderful view of the pond and garden from the living area. A very charming property. The bed was huge and very comfortable. The shower was great and the property was warm and comfortable. Friendly hosts.
We were returning for the 4th time for a week after a break of two years. Whilst we can agree that the cottage is located in the most beautiful location, I'm afraid that that is all we can agree with other reviews. From the very first moment we arrived we were disappointed. In the past we have been left a starter of tea and milk, this was no longer available and also in the rental it states that a starter pack of wood is provided, we were left 2 damp logs, no kindling and no paper, had we not taken our own we would never have been able to light the log burner. As it became darker and we turned on the lights and found that over 50% of the bulbs in the cottage didn;t work and when we asked for some they were left outside for us to put in. Sadly the cottage is looking old and tired and some of the furniture was missing,(from our first vist), and what was left was uncomfortable, after a few days I found I could no longer sit on the sofa as it just wasn't comfortable, We found a note inside the cottage asking people to turn the heating off whilst out and that the owners reserve the right to enter the property and turn the heating off. This would have been alright if we could have actually found how to turn the heating on in the first place. The fridge door in the kitchen didn't shut properly and our food spoilt. The oven didn't work effectively and some of the kitchen cupboards are not straight on the walls and slighly damaged. The bed was uncomfortable as well and I ended up having a bad back. Two of the features of the cottage are the pond outside the back door and the fact that people are allowed to bring their pets. Sadly the pond was overgrown and thick with green allgea and was in an awful state, so much so that I didnt go outside the back of the cottage once and although we didn't take our dogs I actually found fleas on myself. We were so disappointed that we left a day early and emailed the owner who didn't address many of our concerns just stating that a new kitchen was being put into the cottage in Nov and that we should have told her about the CH. All in all this cottage is no longer a 5 star cottage, not even possibly a 2 star, but I'm sure that it will improve with a little time and money spent on it.....unfortunately we shall not return again as we felt that the damage has already been done and there was little sympathy from the owner.
A beautiful and relaxing place to stay. The owners were very kind and helpful. Will definitely be visiting again.
