    An excellent week, our first holiday with our dog and Oast Cottage was excellent. The welcome pack was great as was the cottage and its facilities. Beyond our expectations and lovely owners too.

    The house is a dream and so many different things in the kitchen were already there. A real surprise when we arrived! Above all a real nice house next to the owners.

    What a little gem. We had a wonderful long weekend at this delightful cottage along with our little chihuahua Tillie. It was immaculate and so very comfortable, with everything you could possibly need and more. Our hosts had thought of everything including a towel and some treats for Tillie. The welcome treats for us were possibly the best we have ever experienced and very welcome. The log burner was a real delight and made it very cosy. The information pack we received from our hosts before we arrived was extremely thoughtful. All in all, a very lovely cottage in peaceful surroundings. We will definitely return but hopefully for a longer stay next time

    Great cottage, very well equiped, the owners have provided everything you're likely to need for your stay. Adjacent to a farm with stables so some sound of horses etc but this didn't spoil our holiday. Warm welcome from the owners together with a very generous welcome pack. Overall we're happy to recommend this cottage.
