Beautiful cottage, lovely surroundings and amazing views. The children loved the field, play equipment and games room.
Mrs Merry

This was a great Cottage for family fun with a good size barn for poor weather games and great outdoor space for enjoying the views. Will definitely go back again.
Mrs Scullion

A beautiful cottage which was very tastefully decorated, well equipped and in a lovely setting. It was great to have the swing and slide for the 2 toddlers and the barn with the games for the parents and grandparents. The owners were very helpful and caring.
Mrs Galley

It was very well equipped, especially the kitchen. Everything has been thought of to make a really pleasant stay. A lovely peaceful setting, ideal for families with swings, slides and play barn.
Mrs Denby

A warm comfortable, relaxing holiday with family and friends. A beautiful character cottage which functioned well for all involved. I have already recommended to a colleague the details of Holly Cottage. We had a fantastic time and will be booking another holiday in the near future.
