This was an amazing property to stay in for our holiday. Absolutely perfect. I could not imagine a better location to call home for a holiday. The garden was quaint and the whole place was relaxing and welcoming.
Mrs Parkhurst

Everything at Monks Cottage was wonderful. We found it to be very quiet and peaceful, the perfect place to recuperate and rest. We were very impressed by the cleanliness of the cottage and loved the garden on a sunny afternoon. We were very happy there.
Mrs Bradley

Loved the cottage and the location, it was a very dog friendly area. Would definitely return.
Mrs Llewhellin

Great cottage with excellent standards all round, a great location for nearby attractions, and a charming and friendly village. We particularly liked the large rooms and the well designed, planted and maintained garden. Period features and history of the cottage were added distinctions.
Dr Levy
