    A beautiful well maintained cottage. Kitchen was very well equipped.Lovely bedding and towels provided as well as tea and coffee. Lots of information provided by the owners regarding household information ( how to use heating,cooker, bin collection days etc) and also places to visit. It was a home from home. Thoroughly enjoyed staying here with our dog and would highly recommend it.

    We really enjoyed our stay at Folly Cottage. Very cosy cottage in a village lane with lovely features including wood burner and garden seating area. Kitchen is very well equipped and we self-catered easily. We also enjoyed meals in the local pubs which were excellent quality. Beamed ceilings, stone floors and a cottage garden make this little cottage very authentic and welcoming.

    Enjoyable stay at this delightful cottage to attend a wedding close by. Lovely weather meant we could enjoy the lovely gardens and walks . The cottage was very clean through out and well equipped. Bed linens and towels were also very good. A blind at the bedroom window would have been appreciated as the light streamed in very early in the morning. Great to have a drive to park your car, it is a little tight getting in but lots of room once parked, we have a very big 4x4 and had no problems. Would defiantly stay in this cosy cottage again and recommend to friends.

    Lovely little cottage, we didn’t want for anything, great facilities. Lovely location and good local pubs for food, drink both of which were dog friendly. Only slight negative was it could have been cleaner in places, some surfaces missed, crumbs under sofa cushions and bed linen a little tired. This didn’t spoil our stay and we would definitely go back. Beautiful setting, sweet gardens and very handy parking.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our week at Folly Cottage and woukd recommend it. The only fault I could find was, the car parking area is a bit tight if you’ve got a larger car.

    The heating was difficult to turn on and for most of the week we were cold. The shower was very weak and it was nice to come home to my power shower! A bedside light in the main bedroom would have been great too. Overall though the cottage was lovely and it was good that we could take the dog too.

    We had a lovely stay at the cottage, it was very cosy and relaxing. It was an excellent base to explore the surrounding area. All equipment and facilities worked well, although we struggled getting to grips with the heating system we worked it out in the end. We appreciated the chocolates and prosecco but were slightly disappointed with the lack of the little touches, i.e. kitchen roll. All in all, we had a great holiday and would be happy to return.

    Lovely cottage, with nice touches made for a welcoming stay. Some kindling to get the log burner started (not just logs) would've been helpful.



    out of 10

    Property was exactly as described which is good. As is often the case with rental properties, cleanliness is a bit of a subjective view and could have been improved. However we discovered that the dishwasher wasn't working properly as well as leaking. Local amenities are limited to two pubs, but we new that anyway, and access to shops etc was within 5 miles
