A fantastic find for our annual girlie weekend. After 20 years of going away, this has to be one of the most comfortable and well-equipped cottages we have stayed in.

Having done several cottage holidays, Ivy Cottage has topped our list. The setting, the decor, the facilities, well in fact everything. We just couldnt fault it. We even cracked cooking with the AGA! Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to enjoy your cottage, and we now have so many happy memories to treasure from a brilliant stay

We've had a lovely, if all too brief stay at Ivy Cottage, with rain to let us appreciate the cosiness of the fire and sun to let us enjoy tea in the conservatory

Eight of us stayed at your FABULOUS cottage to celebrate our 30th birthdays. Immaculate and so comfortable, the cottage offered everything we needed. Very well equipped kitchen and some memorable moments in the lovely lounge with a fab fire. A home from home - we will be sad to leave!

Absolutely wonderful stay here at Ivy Cottage! Thank you so much! We will definitely book to stay again next time we are here. We loved our evenings by the fire!

We booked Ivy Cottage as a break for my mums 60th birthday and could not have been happier. It is without doubt of the loveliest cottages we have ever stayed in. Everything is perfectly and meticulously done. Clean, fresh, beautifully designed and furnished, a real home from home. Even in October the house was warm and cosy, the Aga heating throughRead more to the conservatory, where we sat to have breakfast each morning. We will be returning in the summer and cant recommend the property enough to anyone thinking about booking a stay. Hide

Gorgeous cottage in an idyllic location. Spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated (I used to be an interior designer for Laura Ashley and recognise much of the interior!) Very comfortable beds, lush bedding and smart bathrooms. A home from home
