Not as good as advertised
Very disappointed,we didn't see or have any contact from owners. The basic things let the place down, no slice for frying pan, knives in block were all blunt, no spare bin liner or place to put recycling, no matches to light wood burner I would have thought a starter pack could have included them. The bedrooms were comfortable but silly cupboards to hang clothes. All in all we were very disappointed with the overall cottage.

We had a comfortable stay. It was a good base for exploring the area; we particularly enjoyed Portsmouth Spinnaker, Dockyard and Arundel Castle.
Mr Youngman

We enjoyed the peaceful surroundings and found the cottage to be very cosy and well-equipped. Thank you for everything and for providing milk and a nice cake!
Mrs Lusher

We arrived later than planned but was able to get in the cottage after following our instructions. From this point on we were delighted. The cottage was clean and tidy and in a very good condition. There was a lemon cake and a bottle of milk waiting for us and all the tea and coffee we could drink. We did not meet the owners at any time, we would like to have thanked them personally and apologise for the mug that was broken. The cottage is super warm, we had to open doors and windows to cool down. Would definitely recommend to family and friends and stay there again if we are ever that way again.

Very comfortable cottage to return to after exploring the local area.
