              Too many instructions for children ( guests) to obey

              Stayed for two nights in the Duchess Suite. It was very clean, neat and modern. Everything works perfectly and it was a nice quiet location. Highly recommended.

              We only stayed for 1 night, but would recommend it to anyone. The booking went smoothly and we received a warm welcome by the owners. The price was right for what we needed. It was a lovely quaint cottage catering for all our needs. We felt safe as it had a security gate to the entrance, plus enough security gates on the cottage doors as well. I was impressed that there was both a bath and shower. It was clean and neat and it was lovely having a private garden.

              Barry and Lesley welcomed us and made us feel at home. Facilities available were good. When there were problems - a power cut at one point, a difficulty with TV reception - Barry was very helpful and made every effort to sort things out for us. We were appreciative of the hospitality shown to us.
