"Exceptional! Everything was excellent. Everything you wanted was at the cottage. Drop your case and start your holiday"


"Superb . Lovely quiet location. Thoughtful touches such as milk and cake provided, and toys and books for the children. Sylvia went over and above to ensure we were comfortable."


"I wish I could have taken this place around with us on our two-week trip through various parts of England; this was the one place—of four Superhost stays—that I could truly relax physically and psychologically. "
