"Fabulous views over the Severn estuary. Lovely welcome hamper on arrival. Possibly the best equipped and most homely holiday rental we have ever stayed at...everything was thought of, provided and immaculate. Fascinating history to the cottage which really brought it to life and made our stay so much more personal. We didn't want to leave the cottage, the log burner or the escape from reality we needed! Will certainly recommend to all friends and family."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2016-11-14
"Thank you for making us so welcome and especially for the birthday card and gift (so thoughtful and appreciated). This cottage was the perfect base for a wonderful weekend spent walking, eating and drinking - plus looking out of the windows at the magnificent, ever-changing view of the Severn. We hope to return. Thank you for the very generous welcome hamper. We did not stay long enough here to finish it!"Sue and Keith Bruton 2015-05-01
"I think your cottage was one of the best we have ever stayed in and we look forward to returning in the not too distant future."Barbara and Graham Smith 2015-05-01
