Absolutely beautiful property and location.

Mrs Debbie E,

Lovely views over the field and lake gave a nice rural feel to the cottage, despite the proximity to the main road. Very dog friendly, which is always a plus - securely fenced garden, a dog blanket and bowl provided. Bathroom very nice, and beds comfortable. Parking area was a bit of a trek, with luggage to carry! But, all in all, we enjoyed our stay at the cottage.

Mrs Kay W,

Fabulous enclosed garden for dogs.

Mrs Gill C,

We had a few problems with our car during the stay requiring it to go to the garage, The owner was very helpful and accommodating allowing us to delay our departure so that we could go directly to the garage and then home to Essex.

I K,
