Guestbook selections

We stayed in The West Wing for 3 weeks and cottage 4 for a week. They were both very comfortable and above all clean! We have stayed in some dirty rentals before! They were both very well equipped including dishwasher tablets and even a coffee machine. The cottages are south facing and the garden is very peaceful with a lovely aspect over farmland. There was even a zip wire and a large paddling pool which my children thought was the best garden ever. We felt very much at home there. Caroline Street was very kind and helpful.

Claire and Jonathan (September 2016)

We had a very good stay in the cottage. It is really convenient place for a family of four. The only point which can be improved would be the curtains in the bedrooms. The morning light comes through easily. Thank you for all
