Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little disappointed The cottage was freezing cold when we arrived and took a long time to warm up. Our daughter had a bath (the spa didn't work) and used all the hot water, so there was no more hot water until morning. Also, the cottage is just to the side of the main house, which you need to drive past, so not very private at all. The gardens are lovely and the cottage is nicely decorated, but the closeness to the family house (with 3 small dogs), didn't give us the feeling of any privacy or being away from it all which we prefer in a weekend away

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just stunning!!! A treasure hidden away. Took our breath away as we stepped in the doors, immaculately presented and incredibly comfortable. The grounds were beautiful and everything was picturesque. I can not speak more highly of this place. Breakfast provisions were deliciously fresh and filling. Would highly recommend and would defiantly return.
