  • We loved our stay in this cottage

    We loved our stay in this cottage. It was very comfortable and the atmosphere was so conducive to relaxation. Enjoyed the peace of the surrounding countryside but still close to facilities in Masterton. There was a plentiful supply of lovely food for breakfast.

    Wonderful quite location amoung olive trees, the cottage is really tastefully decorated, all the things you might need in the kitchen, a lovely gas fire for those cooler evenings, a nice courtyard if it's warmer and a wonderful bathroom. Holly left generous breakfast supplies and fresh fruit for us to enjoy. We would very happily stay again.
