    Ruth – 11 Sep 2018
    "Beautiful cottage - location was everything we wanted and expected!Overall, the comfort of the cottage was great. However, the oven and the hob performance are very poor, compromising the self-catering experience. Instructions regarding refuse disposal were not very clear. If you are going to stay in this cottage, you don't need to put the bin out for collection as somebody else does this for you. The good points far outweigh the negatives, and we would not hesitate to stay here again."
    Graham – 10 Jul 2018
    "Lovely comfy beds, very good shower . The fridge freezer is really too small for 4 adults needs. The cottage is quite well equipped pot towels , enough wash powder for one wash and dish cloth etc.The garden is amazing for relaxing and enjoying the beautiful scenery ( beware the wasps)The bathroom tap is very hard to turn off fully and the toilet seat moves but otherwise a great place to stay . In fact will be returning next year🙂The cottage is hellishly difficult to find ,the only help I can offer is there is a traffic cone opposite the entrance to Stables and dairy cottage, the entrance to checkers is approx 100 yards on if the cone is on your right ."

    "Quite difficult to find but otherwise perfect for a quiet getaway"

    "Good clean and well equipped cottage. In need of some tlc as loose taps and toilet seat but shower excellent and plenty of hot water. Difficult contacting housekeeper due to poor mobile reception would have been helpful for directions to house or housekeeping. But dealt with smoke alarm promptly once we got through."
