I had a wonderful three night stay at Lavender Cottage with Trevor and Celia, who made me feel most welcome and cared for. It felt like home away from home and I thoroughly enjoyed my evening walks with Trevor and Emma, the labrador. I will definitely be back.

I have recently stayed at Lavender Cottage for 10 days. Lovely spacious room and bathroom in a very quiet serene area. Loved everything about my stay - especially the gardens, the quality of the bed and pillows. Trevor and Celia went out of their way to be kind and helpful. Really enjoyed my stay and would recommend it to my friends, family and anybody else.

We enjoyed our stay from the time we walked in the front door, until our last goodbye. It is a wonderfully spacious cottage, very neat and comfortable. The owners are very friendly, helpful and go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. I will recommend the cottage for a nice family holiday.
