The cottage has been tastefully furnished and co-ordinated with soft colours, and has an open plan living space with a feature inglenook fireplace and wood burner.

The owner provides Cath Kidston and The White Company bed linen and towels with Molton Brown shower products.

    This was a pleasant cottage and is well maintained. It is however a little small, I wouldn't recommend planning on doing much cooking in the kitchen. When it is was very hot > 28°C, though the rest of the cottage remained quite cool, the second bedroom which is in the roof space was quite hot with little ventilation. But generally we enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to others.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The weather has indeed been incredibly unusual and I understand the concerns about the heat in the top bedroom and the coolness of downstairs. I sincerely hope that it did detract from you having a most enjoyable holiday. Thank you.

    Loved the way the cottage was furnished, very high standed , everything you could need on a holiday. We did find the small bathroom upstairs challenging , but we were warned so not complaining. The kitchen area had everthing you needed but also rather small and some appliances difficult to use/reach .

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for taking the time to write a review, I am so pleased that your enjoyed your stay. It is really important to me that all guests have the most enjoyable and comfortable stay at Sweet Pea. I appreciate that the kitchen area is compact therefore I am looking into the possible potential of extending the space by converting the outbuildings to a more useable space. Thank you and I look forward to welcoming you again to Sweet Pea Cottage.

    A beautiful cottage & so well equipped.Despite hearing some noise from the adjacent property & no small freezer for ice,ice cream,freezer blocks etc(or did we just not find it?)we would definitely come back to stay.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your kind comments and I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Sweet Pea. I sincerely apologise for you not having the use of the freezer for your stay as it was in the outbuilding. Since your stay I have moved a small table top freezer in to the dining area. Thank you again for your helpful comments as this helps me improve future guests stay.

    We had a great stay at Sweetpea cottage. A bit disappointed we had to go and buy “kindling wood” to get the log burner going.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Sincere apologies that you had to buy kindling wood for the log burner during your stay. I have today confirmed with my housekeeper that all guests arrive at Sweet Pea cottage with a full basket of logs and kindling wood for their use. Thank you for your kind comments.

    The cottage is lovely and furnished to a very high standard. However, there a number of issues that detracted from our stay. The 2nd floor and particularly the shower room is so restricted in height as to challenge the use of this floor by adults. The sound insulation from the adjoining property is not good - at times we felt as if people were going to walk in on us and at other times had to turn music on to mask the noise from next door. The lack of delineation between neighbouring gardens would also raise an issue with dogs/ children in the summer. On a practical point - the lack of an ice-box or freezer is a real irritant, but the provision of a starter pack of ice-cubes in the fridge would help no end.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner:- Thank you for your feedback. The photos clearly illustrate the height of the 2nd floor bathroom and clearly shows the ceiling slopes, however we can add this to the details. We will also look to add a small table top freezer, thank you for suggesting it. I am really sorry about the the noise from from the neighbouring property. Whilst this is a shared garden as described in the property details, the boundaries are defined from the washing line in the centre up to the property. We have discussed with the neighbours about putting a fence down to define boundaries, we do however feel that would detract from open countryside views. Thank you for your comments and it helps improve the guest experience.
