We’ve had a wonderful couple of days in the cottage. We think this is the best cottage we have stayed in. Fabulous scenery and love the chickens and wildlife. We will definitely come to stay again.

Fantastic break away from the ‘big smoke’. Lovely people (Jo & Family), beautiful views, stunning cottage with beds to die for! Can’t wait for next visit. PS chilli jam is amazing – buy some homemade produce.

We have had another fabulous stay for Chris’ 60th birthday. Waking up to snow was a magical sight – it was truly beautiful. Can’t wait to come back in March for Lucy’s birthday.

Thank you, Jo & Steve, for having us and allowing us to experience both your cottages. Even though you are only across the Midlands, it felt like a real getaway and has been a wonderful base to explore for a couple of days.
