    Charming little cottage which suited our needs. The owners were very friendly and helpful and thoughtfully provided a welcome pack which was very much appreciated. The cottage was well equipped and comfortable, apart from the sofa which was a futon that we found to be very uncomfortable. Overall well maintained and clean, although the oven and hob as well as pots and pans could use a little more respect by people benefitting from the facilities offered by the owners.

    Of particular note was the amount of items available for use and they were of decent quality. The welcome pack was excellent and the couple were friendly and helpful. We are in fact returning to the same venue next week for a few days. The location is very much off the beaten track but suited us fine but would not be for everybody. Isolated a little and far from the madding crowd. Our idea of just what we wanted. Brian and Irene .

    staying at Lake House Cottage gave us a chance to see the "real England". Finchingfield was a beautiful village from which to explore other areas off the tourist track. The owners, Dave and Jackie, were exceptionally helpful and friendly.

    Weather was good for our planned program of family history research & visiting. Not sure what you mean by Location? It is where it is - and we knew that. The owners could not change the location. It would be no good wishing it was located elsewhere. We chose it because it was a location suitable for our needs.
