Lovely cottage for two people, with very welcoming dogs, host and even pigs! Cozy fireplace for winter and trendy decor inside. Bed was so comfy, felt like home! In very peaceful and quiet countryside, will definitely return one day!

Thanks so much Jacqui. We had such a lovely stay. Being able to bring our dog was an added bonus and the garden was big and completely fenced so no worries for me with her escaping. The cottage was really clean and so comfy. Such a peaceful spot. We will definately be back for another visit. Thanks sooo much. Regards leigh

A friendly hostess with 4 dogs and 2 pigs welcomed me and my Beagle to Herb Cottage. A cutting of fresh jasmine gave the cottage a beautiful aroma. The fireplace worked well for the cool Midlands eve. I visited the local farmer's market on Sunday morning. A taste of country life - a great weekend getaway from the hustle of city life.

This little cottage was exactly as the advert said and more - welcoming, comfortable, relaxing.  The little touches made it feel like home and the cherry on the top was a great fireplace with an endless supply of wood.  We loved the visits by the dogs and also meeting Bacon and Chops (two big black pigs who acted like dogs!).
