    We arrived to have a relaxing weekend away from our very busy lives, and that was exactly what we was able to do here. Added bonus was the pool and gym equipment. Fantastic place in a fantastic environment. Quiet and nice walks for us and the dog. Owners on site so any problems they are at hand to deal with them. Lovely couple. Standard of cottage and pool area was very high. Great Value for money. We will be defiantly be returning again for either a long weekend or a weeks holiday.

    Another fab few days at Grooms cottage. The 7th time we have stayed so I guess that pretty much says it all. Proper home from home and relaxing time. Cottage up to the usual great standard .New settee and chair are lovely, although we loved the old one too. We use Brankley farm cottages as a base when we visit my family in Staffs and visit friends in Derby . All three cottages are fantastic ,we have been in total 10 times . Grooms cottage ideal for our needs ,easy access for wheelchair and walk in shower a plus too. Love sitting in the garden with my morning coffee overlooking the field and horses. The pool and jacuzzi is another big plus for both me and my son,especially after the long drive down from Scotland. Lovely to catch up with Jayne and Jason again. See you soon, Corinne &Sam

    We found Cottage pleasant setting although not convenient for walks or eating out . Found cooking essentials glazed and cooking trays not healthy to use. Had problem as door fell off top cupboard (reported to owner) also problems with hot water system which owner did rectify and gave small sum in recompense . Shower did not have a grab rail which I may suggest is needed for older people. Swimming Pool very good also Spa pool. Changing Facilities did not have locks on toilet door and changing area same, possibly one should change back at Cottage? The sitting area not comfortable, settee upholstery cushions sagged We enjoyed our stay but feel living area very tired. Bedroom very pleasant although bed linen clean but again tired

    The cottage was adequate for our stay, but we found the sofa very saggy and uncomfortable and one of the kitchen chairs was broken. WIFI was not available in the cottage, but we did use the WIFI signal in the games room, whilst sitting on bean bags. The kitchen was adequate but lacked helpful things such as potato peeler, scale pan, tea pot, I agree you can improvise alternatives. There were no groceries in the cottage, so if you go, make sure you take everything with you you might need. It was great to have use of the swimming pool, but I would have given this up for a comfy sofa! The patio was lovely, but we had to walk the dog through the bedroom to reach it.

    A beautifully renovated cottage in a lovely setting on a non- working farm with horses in the fields beyond the cute little garden. The cottage was well- equipped and extremely clean, and the bed in the master bedroom was really comfortable. The swimming pool and games room are great for kids and adults alike. The location is good as The National Memorial Arboretum and Lichfield are only 20 minutes away, the Peak District is close by and large centres such as Burton- upon- Trent and Stoke- on Trent aren’t too far away. A tranquil setting for a relaxing stay.

    Cottage was lovely and warm and comfy. The one gripe fridge was TOO small and not user friendly to access. Ok if you a midget.

    The cottage is lovely and peaceful in a beautiful location. There is a lovely little patio & garden which backs onto field with horses grazing. I travelled with my little dog who enjoyed it too. The weather was very cold but the cottage was warm and snug. The owner was very but did not disturb you.

    Convenient for us as close to family. Bit of a drawback as internet very hit and miss.

    Gorgeous, cosy cottage in a lovely and very peaceful location, our dog was instantly at home! The cottage was well equipped and the bed was extremely comfortable. Lots to see in the surrounding area and we are already planning a return trip.
