"Thank you, a fabulous place to stay. This is a perfect place to retreat to. Quiet & so well set up with everything we needed.The garden setting, the art work & the extra, quirky outdoor bathroom means this place has the X factor.

We'll be back, Roger, Anne & Eliza

    I stayed in winter and even then the house got lots of sun during the day and was warm thanks to the heat pump. A lovely location - I can see it would be a great place for a summer holiday.

    its a lovely cottage and location adjacent to the park and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A little tight with parking the boat in the drive. Cheers-
