This is by far the best quality property we have ever stayed in, it was extremely well equipped and above all very clean. The use of the lovely pool was a massive bonus to us. The location is beautiful and very quiet, and the village pub and hotel serve good food and have friendly staff. We will definitely be returning next year , Thank you CarolinRead moree for a lovely escape to the country, Kind Regards Helen and Joy. Hide

Beautiful house in a lovely setting run by kind and caring owners. Straight out of the door one has direct access to country walks. The garden is private and delightful. Our party likes to cook and we found all the equipment we needed. Its a great base to explore the area and all the garden of England has to offer. Thoroughly recommend

A delightful cottage in a beautiful garden with plenty of garden furniture. An excellent swimming pool. Very comfortable beds, including the one provided downstairs for our dog! A great location for National Trust properties, and Ashburnham Place for afternoon tea with the biggest scones we have ever come across!

A very well decorated and comfortable place to stay. The owners were very helpful providing extra items that we requested including a sun lounger for my daughter. However, please note that the swimming pool use is very restricted including no weekend use. A great area to explore and a convenient walk to the centre of the village.
