1st comment: A very clean comfortable holiday cottage. Very cosy and very well appointed. Sept 2011.
2nd comment: Excellent property with everything that you could need. Very well situated within easy reach of many places. Very quiet with very little noise from the trains and road. Aug 2011.
3rd comment: Fantastic setting off point for activities in all directions! Lodge was bigger than expected and the lounge / kitchen /dining area very comfortable with plenty of light. Would stay there again and wished we’d been able to stay 2 weeks as 1 wasn’t long enough! Garden to side and front, plenty of space and privacy. June 2011.

10th comment: We had a great holiday and the accommodation was exceptional with everything you could possibly need. We had 4 children with us aged 1,2,3 & 13 and the property was safe and very clean.
