    Comfortable beds, lovely welcome pack. As others said, strange to have to exit through side door and into garage for the dishwasher, freezer and washing machine and tumble dryer. Could do with a DVD player, this was a surprise not to have one, not a complaint just be aware of this and maybe a refresh of the family board games is needed. Overall, we had a wonderful stay. The library bus visited Wednesday morning which was a pleasant surprise for our children. The Mermaid was a friendly family pub with good food and a nice welcome. Highly recommended.

    Excellent cottage. Beautiful large back garden. In a very quiet small village but ideally located to explore lots of different areas within 20 - 40 mins drive through beautiful scenery. Best cottage we've been to and we've stayed in many. Would definitely recommend.

    We have rented holiday cottages for many years and Watermeadow ranks with the best. It is exceptionally clean and very well equipped. All furnishings and equipment are brand new. It has a comfortable conservatory and a private secluded garden. Good eating pub at the Fox at Lyng, just one mile away. I would recommend this cottage.

    Beautiful property for the perfect get away. Situated in a very quiet location, no traffic noise, it was lovely to wake up and hear the birds singing. A nice walk to the local pub where there is lovely food and a warm welcome. We spent some lovely evenings as a family in the conservatory listening to music and playing cards. Will definitely look at returning again.

    A lovely cottage for a nice peaceful rest. Very clean and comfortable. Lovely to watch a pair of red legged partridges that make a regular visit to the garden, they are very tame. Hope to make a return visit soon.
