Lexington Park Cottage

 Fantastic property, excellent finishing touches to give it a taste of luxury. Stunning surroundings, very peaceful with horses across the back fence and an amazing starry sky! We will certainly be booking again 

Shaftesbury Glade Cottage

 We loved Shaftesbury Cottage! So quiet & peaceful & surrounded by beautiful trees. There were so many lovely little touches that made us feel relaxed & in "holiday mode" immediately. Highly recommended!! 

2 baches-rent 1/both

 Great location and good sized, lovely lady to deal with payment etc but a few cob webs and dirty dishes put away in the clean stack of dishes in the cupboard. Otherwise 10/10 

Gorgeous modern 2bdrm Bach on huge flat section..

 This Bach was beautifully clean, perfect size and on a lovely spacious, quiet property. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back. It was also very easy to organise and book - thank you. 

Lexington Park Cottage

 Staying in Cherry was superb, it had the feel and touches of a hotel suite. A great welcome pack including all the essentials and a few extras (lovely biscuits!!!) It was great to have sky TV as well. The rooms are really well furnished and the cooking facilities were great. Peaceful location and definitely worth a stay 

Courtyard Retreat Studio Cross the road onto Beach

 Great host, great location. Would stay again.
