This is an excellent property, clean, well equipped, quite location, fantastic views, value for money, friendly owners. Could find no fault with this property a real home from home.Mr Chris Huscroft - 24th August 2017
We had a very enjoyable stay at The Hop Pocket. The owners were very welcoming and accommodating and the welcome pack was excellent. The location was very beautiful. The cooking equipment was very good, however, the amount of space for preparing a meal and eating was limited. We would definitely recommend The Hop Pocket. Mrs C Whiteway - 12th May 2017
Lovely apartment everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Walks around the farm and surrounding area were stunning with great pubs nearby.Mrs J Titcombe - 14th April 2017
