          i loved the cottage, it is comfortable and had all the necessities for a quick weekend visit. i appreciated the basic tea coffee milk etc in the kitchen. The bed was cosy and comfy. The only thing I would have liked added, was curtains (lace curtains or blinds) on the kitchen/lounge windows.

Comfortable space for a family to safely enjoy the Midlands farm life with lovely rustic chic decor, cozy beds with luxury linen & super soft blankets and all necessary appliances for self catering.

While settling in, we discovered the lovely treasures... books for all tastes, my youngest read most of the children’s picture books!... A tv & dvd’s in case we felt like a movie and dstv, which...
