Totally delightful in every way. Second visit an looking forward to coming again.
The location in the charming hamlet of Norbury is superb. Lots of scenic walks and warm, kind people to encounter. The house is perfect; warm, spotless and full of everything you could possibly want. Large hob and spacious kitchen. Lots of outside space and garden furniture and for the cooler evenings a glorious wood burning stove. We stayed in January and had snow so it was like staying in a picture postcard with views across to the beautiful church opposite. I really cannot recommend it highly enough. TOP TIPS? Ask at the farm opposite to buy eggs, (chicken and duck)! And ensure to eat at least twice in the fantastic INN ON THE GREEN just up the road in Wentnor. This really is the best rental we have ever enjoyed and in the most gorgeous location. We'll be back!

Lovely accommodation!
Lovely accommodation, they have thought of everything. Well equipped kitchen, clean towels and bedding, laundry facilities, lovely outside space, and a spacious inside. A real plus that it's pet friendly as well. Not too much close by to do etc. so you would need a vehicle with you. The only negative point is that the internet connection was very temperamental and would drop in and out. Other than that, great all round place!

A very comfortable house surrounded by beautiful countryside.
Mrs Scullion

The cottage was very spacious, clean and well equipped. The wood burner was a real treat too.
Mrs Eaves

It was a wonderful stay. Abbott's Retreat was beautifully located and wonderfully equipped. We loved watching the birds in the garden, the cosy woodburner and the lovely walks nearby.
