What our clients say...

"Thanks again for your hospitality over the weekend. We loved the cottage and all the special touches throughout. The breakfast was amazing and it was great to have it there on arrival to snack as we pleased. The quality of the food and snacks definitely wasn’t unnoticed.

The double glazing, electric blankets, heat pump, robes, slippers and Sheridan towels all made the stay a lot more comfortable.

The quality appliances, including the Nespresso coffee machine, Kenwood toaster and the hot and cold tap, meant we didn’t even need to boil a jug!

After full days of biking and exploring it was great to hop into the spa and have a wine. The privacy screens were another welcomed touch.

The drop off and pick up into town for dinner was also a great help, as well as the homework you had done for some suitable tracks for us to ride.

I cannot recommend this place enough, we will definitely be back. Thanks again for the amazing welcome and help throughout our stay."
