What our clients say

Another enjoyable stay- it’s just like home from home: comfortable and well equipped. Thank you for your suggestion where we could go off road cycling. Hopefully we will be back to explore more of this delightful part of England.

Our third stay here at Flo’s Cottage which probably says it all. Visiting family in the area, this is our home from home – John and Heather have always welcomed us in the same friendly way, and we have become accustomed to the fine welcome pack and a very clean cottage.

Len and Ann Vancover Island, Canada. Sept 2014.


A delightful cottage, everything you could want for a comfortable stay. Attention to every detail was appreciated particularly the welcome package. We will certainly return at a future date. An amazing renovation thank you. “The village is tranquil and a very pleasant place to stay.

A 4* cottage in our opinion! Lovely décor, very cosy and comfortable. Very well equipped kitchen and the welcome pack was a very pleasant and appreciated addition. Our boys loved playing in the garden. Thanks for a memorable holiday.
