Spent a week at the Old Rectory Cottage with my husband and 3 children, with three members of our family joining us for a couple of days. What a stunning property! Beautifully furnished, gorgeous views and everything thought of, from a better equipped kitchen than we have at home, to games, books and WiFi, and a TV in every bedroom. We spent hours on the peaceful patio, sitting on the loungers and drinking in the beautiful scenery and some of our party tried the jacuzzi, which was amazing The pool is huge and the pool house has showers, a loo, changing rooms, seating and toys for the kids to play with in the water. The pool was always a lovely temperature. Despite the owner living next door, the property is very private - we only saw Stuart when we needed something. He is hugely welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for him - he even contacted us after we had left to let us know we had left something of value behind. Our relatives had to leave on the third day and didn't want to go! We felt the same on our final morning at the cottage. It really is the most relaxing holiday we have had in a long time and we cannot wait to return next year. Thank you Stuart for such a great holiday property!

We stayed at Old Rectory Cottage as an extended family of twelve with ages ranging from eighteen months to 74 years. Without exception we all had a wonderful time! We used the lovely pool and the hot tub was a huge success and used very frequently. There was more than enough kitchen equipment for all the adventurous cooks to produce many delicious meals and the two kitchens were very well used. An excellent holiday house, highly recommended.

Stunning views, great privacy, swimming pool and hot tub perfect temperatures, an amazing Place.

Just returned home after a long weekend at the cottage with family. Firstly the surroundings and views from the cottage are breathtaking, there is a lot of privacy which was perfect for us as we had small children but, Only a few miles away was the local town which has everything you need from supermarkets, mini shops to fast food. The cottage was spectacular and has been designed and finished to an extremely high standard, the pictures do NOT do this place justice!! The owner was also so friendly and helpful, went out of his numerous times to help us. finally the swimming pool and hot tub are amazing both are lovely temperatures. Truly amazing its a MUST visit and you will not be disappointed.

THE BEST WEEKEND EVER, for our group its a yearly treat, we always try to go different places but when we got to this cottage we felt like nothing else could top this. The house is what you see on the picture and more and its TOTAL privacy even though owner lives on site its 100% privacy. There's also a book inside that recommend places to go around the area so we went to the WATERFALL OMG it was the cherry on top. Overall it was just brilliant, i would highly recommend this place. (Dun knuw a fi go back Stuart big up uself)
