“Great value. Comfy house. Responsive and helpful owners.”
Reviewed 29 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We enjoyed our stay in Holly Cottage. It's true what other reviewers have said about it being a bit dated but we didn't really mind. The house was clean when we arrived and all set up. The kitchen had everything we needed and we liked the big shower in the bathroom. We had a few queries on arrival; the owners phoned and things were sorted out right away.

“Great countryside Cottage”
Reviewed 21 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The cottage was exactly what we were looking for our stay. The cottage had all the amenities necessary albeit basic - stocked kitchen, plenty of sleeping room for our family of 4 (including a playpen for our baby), towels, car park, washer and television and DVD player. We loved the bay windows in every room, and its access to the village. The village had 2 pubs, a bistro and a small grocery stores within yards of the cottage. It was perfect!

“Comfortable little cottage in nice village; shame it wasn't better prepared”

person found this review helpful

We weren't too impressed when we arrived; the beds weren't properly made and the place needed cleaning - not terribly dirty just in need of some routine housework but we felt that should have been done before our arrival. However once we got things in order it was comfortable and we had a very pleasant stay. The village was nice and a great location for visits to National Trust properties. The Royal George and Inn the Square both served good ale and the meal we had in the latter was good (we didn't eat in the George).

We were glad to have feed back as it has helped us to try to sort out an obvious problem with regards to our caretaker.
We now have back-up of a contract cleaner, if this should prove necessary.
We would welcome guests to email or telephone us with problems straight after arrival. That way we can react earlier.
We were nevertheless glad that our last guests said they enjoyed their stay and would still recommend the cottage to friends.

“Cute Cottage”
Reviewed 5 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Nice little cottage in pleasant location let down only by the fact that you had to play "hunt the duvet cover" & make up your own beds with what can only be described as very shabby bed linen. Other than that the cottage was fine, clean, comfy & warm.

This was our new caretaker's first assignement and due to her misunderstanding of instructions, the beds were not made up as we had expected. Bed-linen has now been replaced with new.
