    Was lovely cottage with everything of high quality , area was quiet and surrounded by beautiful country side . The only thing I would say is that the bedroom at the back of house upstairs is very cold at night . Other than that everything else was good .

    We had a fantastic weekend break for 7 there was plenty of room and the quiet location was perfect. The coast is a short drive away so though it is a rural setting there is plenty to do within a close radius. We all felt sad as we drove away on the Monday morning to go home. The area surrounding the cottage is beautiful and I would suggest a sat-nav as the best way to make sure you get to enjoy the countryside. Thank you for a memorable week-end.

    Really enjoyed staying at Saracen's Retreat. Two small points to note for future holidaymakers - not much space for storing dry food goods (decent fridge and small freezer section though) and the steep staircase up to the third bedroom has a rope banister and the staircase opens straight into the bedroom, there isn't a dividing door. Nice pubs a few minutes drive away, beaches, and other good places to take kids or adults to.
