Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent property We have just returned from a lovely stay at Train Whistle Cottage. It was perfect for our family of 3 children aged 3, 5 and 8. There was plenty of space and the owners had been very thoughtful in providing a selection of books, games and toys for them. Hide and seek in the garden was also popular. Everything was clean and very comfortable. From the start of the booking process the owners were amazingly helpful and accommodating, the Easter treats were very welcome and a text telling us we were welcome to take out time on the day we were leaving was much appreciated. Thanks for a wonderful holiday, we hope to be back soon.
