    Although the cottage was clean, comfortable and well equipped it was right next to the owner’s property. There was no privacy as the windows from each property were facing one another. There were also two rather large dogs who kept barking and ran up to you as soon as you stepped outside. One dog growled and bared its teeth, although, the owner kept saying they would not bite. The location of the cottage was good for exploring the area but our holiday was spoiled by the lack of privacy and the dogs.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We are very sorry that your holiday experience was spoiled. We have a lovely cottage that most people enjoy and come back to on a regular basis. Normally we do not respond to comments as we feel that each individual has their own opinion and this should be shared without our own input for all to see who wish to come and enjoy our oasis. We value feedback and even have a fix-it book which we use to upgrade the experience for future guests who we value hugely. Our dogs are of a loving nature and very gentle. One is rather vocal. We always endeavour to keep them away from guests unless invited. We find your grading a complete misrepresentation of the facilities and the level of care and attention we give to make all who attend the cottage enjoy a delightful experience.

    Very clean & well equipped. Met by Lionel, very welcoming but then left alone. Very close to relatives that we were visiting & much better than a hotel room.

    Had a great comfortable stay, cosy and well heated. Good location for many attractions. Park n Ride 10 mins away £3 return to Cambridge, very easy. Local bus stops at the end of the lane but takes 45 mins as goes around the villages. Everything available for self catering with a Morrison's nearby. Pub cheap, typical pub food, family noise etc. Was delighted to see a black squirrel on the woodpile with the greys. Woodland Trust walk next door. Appreciated the welcome tea tray and DVD's. Smoke alarm does not like the toaster ! Dogs next door were no bother at all, did not actually see the owners but sounded nice on the phone and visitors book was complimentary of them! Lovely stay would stay again as lots to do in the surrounding area and several National Trust properties too. Recommended.

    just what was needed for a relaxing long weekend. Such a nice accommodation and Hosts. Our own fault relying on postcode but we eventually found the turning.. welcome pack was a lovely touch as were the information leaflets and timetables etc. Indian restaurant Lionel recommended was also very good. Comfortable bedroom with enough storage space, clean bathroom and living/kitchen area. The only minus point was using downstairs toilet during the night but that's our personal opinion. We recommend this cottage and would definitely stay here again without hesitation.
