What they say

Beautiful place...

We had two rooms – a twin and the double and a dog each.
The rooms were very clean and comfortable we had a lovely warm welcome. The cottage is beautiful from its warm cozy cottage feel to its lovely big bathroom. We had a great traditional breakfast and the hosts were very friendly. Would definitely use again and the dogs were also very welcome. Thank you.

Fantastic place for my family to stay

My brother, his wife and two other family members stayed here over the weekend. Incredibly clean, spacious, friendly and flexible. Proper full English breakfast, home made honey etc. Rooms airy and light, comfy beds and nice country views. Handy for Stowe (10 mins walk) and Silverstone (5 mins drive). Highly recommended.
What a Gem.
