                  Hornbills can be highly recommended. Setting in nature is divine. We will certainly return and encourage others to stay over.

                  Really enjoyed our stay especially the quiet peaceful environment, friendly hosts and their dogs! Cottage was basic but spacious and all we needed as a base for the weekend. Loved the indoor fireplace for the cold evenings.

                  Hornbills is a slight challenge to reach without a 4x4, though Richard assured us that the untarred road would soon be improved.  Once there though, it proved to be a perfect getaway. The weather unfortunately wasn't perfect, but we soon had a roaring fire in our beautifully furnished cottage, and  were able to look out onto the really lovely gardens. If the weather had been more clement we would have loved to cross the stream and take advantage of the woodland walks.  Our host and hostess were exceedingly friendly and helpful.  The kitchen needs a little more equipment.  If we are in the area...

                  Hornbills ended up being more than what I expected, only stayed for one night, but if I knew how beautiful the surroundings were, I would have stayed longer.  Definately a place to visit if you want to get away from it all.  Good value for money!
