    We had a wonderful relaxing break here. There was everything we needed to make it feel like home straight away. The travel cot, high chair and stair gate were all in perfect condition. The house was so cozy and comfortable, especially with the log burner on. It was in a very quiet rural location, so great to get away from everything and relax! We would love to stay here again.

    We were warmly welcomed by Gilly, caretaker of Cart Lodge. There was a roaring wood fire and kettle on the boil. Wonderfully warm, comfortable and peaceful property. We heard owls hooting at dusk and saw flocks of gold finches in the trees. Absolutely wonderful stay. We will definitely recommend

    Wonderful cottage in beautiful out of the way location. Property is very comfortable, well furnished and thought out. Hamlet is beautiful and nearby village pub excellent. Host couldn't have been warmer or kinder.

    Fantastic place to stay. Touched all the right buttons. A lovely and quiet location, but a short drive away to what one needs when on a short break.
