Some of Many Visitor Comments

WOW. What a lovely cottage. Beautifully decorated with all the mod cons and had everything and more. Jane was charming (thank you).

We had the best break here. The cottage is absolutely beautiful. The nicest and most homely we have stayed in. Everything was spotless and having DVDs, board games and books made it a lot of fun.

Well just about everyone has said what a charming and welcoming cottage this is and we are in complete agreement. Very well equipped, comfortable and warm… what a fun packed week even in January.

Thank you Jane for all the little touches, goodies. A fabulous cottage and one negative comment in a visitors book full of superlatives says it all – great place to stay.

Thanks for providing us with such a wonderful cottage. The pics don’t do it justice. It really has every home comfort and a delight to return to after a long day of walking.

Our first holiday with a baby. The cottage is beautiful. It’s twice the size we were expecting so a very pleasant surprise. You have really tastefully renovated and decorated it and a great mix of old and new.
