    Spent the weekend with a group of friends at the cottage. All of us loved the tranquil location of Waxwing cottage. Hot tub was lovely and ready before we arrived. The open plan lounge/kitchen/dinning room gave us all plenty of room to relax and eat. Highly recommend lovely host!

    If you want a chilled weekend with friends in a large 3 bedroom cottage with hot tub, then this is the place to go. There are some amazing pubs at Foxton and Lubenham which were within a 30 minute walk and very picturesque. The cottage was really spacious and clean throughout and clearly a lot of thought has gone into its renovation. I would definitely recommend this cottage for a 'Get away from it all' break.

    What a fantastic holiday home providing just what we needed. A quiet country spot within easy reach of shops in Market Harborough. The home was perfect for our needs of eating, cooking, chatting and playing games together being open plan. The hot tub was a welcome comfort after our walks. The spacious rooms offered us a good nights sleep. We loved the walk over to Foxton Locks and Foxton village and we were amazed how many eating places were open in early February. The museum was fascinating. Julie the owner popped in a couple of times to check all was well. I would love to come back again and would definitely recommend it.

Disappointed that there was no toilet roll in en-suite and only 1 in main bathroom for 6 people, no teabags or milk and no logs for log burner, says initial logs supplied. Large sun umbrella on web site but none supplied, we did get a bottle of complimentary wine
