    We absolutely loved our stay at Anvil Cottage! The cottage is beautiful and the location is ideal if you are interested in walking (and have a dog like us). We saw a wild boar and her piglets in the forest which was a bonus. We like to cook and found the kitchen to be well equipped. The beds and sofas are comfy. The double bedroom is huge and twin room is also a decent size. The owners are lovely and gave us some good tips for walks and local amenities. We will definitely be booking again. Thank you!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thanks Alice for such a nice review! We are so glad you liked Anvil Cottage and the area. It must have been very exciting to see the boar. Unfortunately we have not seen any ourselves, they do not come into this area; apparently they will not cross the A48, which is a mile away. We hope to see you again, Marie and Nigel.
