    Fabulous accommodation and our hosts Anthony and Carly were so friendly. We would definitely stay there again.

    Lovely cottage and owners for me personally I missed having no phone signal or internet as I like to plan next days attractions and see places I intend to go to

    Beautiful place, very well equipped and centrally located for many tourist attractions. Welcoming and helpful hosts and regular welcoming committee of their two friendly dogs. It wasn't a problem for us, but it might be worth warning people of the lack of Vodafone coverage (don't know about the other networks) and long drive down an unmade road.

    We had a fantastic holiday in The Old Carthouse - really relaxing and welcoming. There were the two of us and our 2 year old and 6 year old and they had a great time too. The place is comfortable and feels well looked after. The kids loved playing with Holly and Meg (the dogs), as well as admiring the ponies and cows in nearby fields. I loved playing with the Pizza oven. I never quite got it right, but I think that's down to practice more than anything. They definitely tasted better than the frozen ones! There's loads of things to do in the area that aren't too far away. We would definitely recommend the National Memorial Arboretum (surprisingly great for young children) which was about 20 minutes drive. We're National Trust members, so we spent a lot of time visiting those properties, and there's plenty to chose from. There's no Wi-Fi and very patchy mobile signal, which is great for feeling disconnected from the world, but did cause a slight hiccup when we couldn't check that somewhere was open (it was closed cause of high winds!) so we nearly had a wasted journey. The DVD player was also rather complicated to figure out!

    Great peaceful location. Friendly and welcoming owners and dogs. Enjoyed getting back each afternoon to have tea sitting in the shade of the orchard as the week was exceptionally hot. A great place to get away from it all.
