This is without doubt a 5* cottage in a super location (both immediate and the surrounding area) that has only one draw back. It is a semi and there is very little, if any, sound proofing between the two cottages. Luckily we only had neighbours for two nights of our stay but it was very clear that as we could easily listen to their every word without any trouble at all it could be a severe draw back. I appreciate that it would not be a simple task to sound proof the wall but suggest that it needs to be done - we would probably return for further stays but would be put off doing so by the chance of "noisy neighbours". One very minor point - it would be useful to have a file with emergency numbers (doctors, dentists, hospitals etc) as well as location of local shops and good eating places plus information on recycling and bin days..... But as I said at the start very much a 5* cottage. Thank you.

Enjoyed a fabulous weekend at Wagtail Cottage. Beautiful cottage set in tranquil surroundings. Julie, the owner, was on hand for any query. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage and would definitely return.

Absolutely amazing cottage. Owner so helpful and attentive. Always available. Visually and location wise one of my favourite cottages I’ve ever visited. Only slight issue is that it’s such a shame nothing can be done to sound proof the cottages better. The adjoining nature means that sound travels throughout the whole block and you’re at the mercy of the first person awake and the last person to sleep. The location of the tv, on the adjoining wall, means you can hear the programme being watched by your neighbours. Word perfectly. Would be perfect holiday accommodation, if you were hiring both out as one big group.

We had a lovely time at Wagtail Cottage, quality time with the family. Had to cut our stay a night short as my husband was unwell, but apart from that it was great. Hope to return some time.

Wagtail Cottage is excellent. Unfortunately our stay was spoilt to an extent by very inconsiderate people in the adjoining cottage who were extremely noisy. Would stay here again though as no problems with the cottage itself.

Overall lovely, clean and spacious cottage. Could have done with a few hooks in bathroom for towels. 3 adults sharing same bathroom meant not all towels could be hung on radiator and only one hook on door. Would recommend cottage. We were lucky that there was no one next door so very quiet. from other guests comments sometimes noisy neighbours.

Cottage was in a lovely position. Easy to find. Very spacious and comfortable. A few negative niggles; No welcome pack, not even a pint of milk, which is fairly standard now. Garden is not secure. It is a ranch type fence that dogs (and toddlers) could just walk through. No manual explaining eg how to work oven, change radiator temperature, when to put out bins, good local pubs etc. Overall a very pleasant stay and these niggles can be easily remedied.

We had the best time at Wagtail Cottage! Julie - the owner - greeted us and ensured we had everything we needed for the duration of our stay; she was also always just a text message away if we had any questions at all. Julie was extremely accommodating of our needs and we felt really looked after. The cottage is located in beautiful countryside, far from the road but near to shops and great pubs. Would highly recommend staying here!
