    Beautiful setting, excellent owner. The only problem is if the adjoining cottage is booked you can hear the people talking and moving about.

    I would have given a perfect score but there was a few niggly areas which didn’t quite make it. The internet was unavailable, there was no shaver plugs in the bathrooms, also we found the en-suite shower basin very dirty around the doors. We purchase a cafeteria to leave there as there was no coffee pot provided within the kitchen appliances Otherwise it would have been a perfect score as it rates as one of the best rentals we have used over the years of traveling back home. We would definitely recommend this accommodation and looking forward to our return stay in January.

    We loved Wagtail cottage and it was exactly what needed for visiting family and friends. The only downside was the noise which comes from the adjoining cottage. It was not excessive but you can hear voices and their TV was quite loud. Having said that we will definitely want to stay there again when we are visiting.

    Heating in the large main room was not sufficient for the elderly who don't care for wood burners!

    Lovely cottage with good attention to comfort and overall facilities. Great location for a peaceful relaxing break. Recommend visitors try the wonderful farm shop in Market Harborough.

    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.
