    out of 10

    Great break large cottage quiet place, great hot tub. Disappointed that there was no toilet roll in en-suite and only 1 in main bathroom for 6 people, no teabags or milk and no logs for log burner, says initial logs supplied. Large sun umbrella on web site but none supplied, we did get a bottle of complimentary wine

    Fantastic stay in Waxwing. Spacious cottage and exactly what we needed! Julie the owner was fab - kept the hot tub in order and always on hand if needed. Well-stocked kitchen, spotless cottage with plentiful parking. The setting is so relaxing with beautiful scenery. Foxton locks walkable for a great day out. Highly recommend - couldn’t be better.

    Great cottage, very clean with helpful owner. Hot tub and wood burner brilliant, in very peaceful surroundings. Good pubs within walking distance, all dog friendly. Fully equipped kitchen and comfortable furnishings. Having control of the central heating temperature would have been appreciated. Highly recommended.
