"Had a wonderful holiday here! Looked after us very well nothing too much trouble, supplied everything needed to start us off, very well-equipped cottage."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2017-09-17
"I booked Rose Tree Cottage as a birthday weekend surprise for my husband along with my daughter, son and his partner my granddaughter and two small dogs Toby and Teddy. The cottage met everything we could have wished for. Beautiful scenery, a wealth of wildlife, serenity. and most importantly the friendliness of our hosts, Jane and Lee who also provided a generous welcome hamper. The cottage was cosy with a lovely garden filled with numerous flowers and trees affording panoramic views from wherever we choose to sit in it. In fact it met all our expectations for a fabulous weekend break and we hope to return next year. Thank you Jane and Lee for making it a birthday weekend to remember."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2017-09-07
