"Very friendly and helpful host, comfortable and very well equipped cottage"Mr Knieper 2017-08-07
"Very clean, very quiet, happy to have our dog play with the owner dogs. Mr Cordeels, July 2017."Cordeels 2017-07-17
"Beautiful setting with perfect grounds for our 2 dogs to run free and with no worries about them getting out onto the road. The owner was very friendly and helpful especially in recommending a good place to book for a surprise Father's Day lunch ( had contacted a couple of weeks in advance of our stay). Even though we have 2 spaniels and holiday with them several times a year we hate staying somewhere where you can smell dogs have been present, not the case here. "Mr Colwill 2016-06-27
