Wow…..just WOW! Where do you begin with such a hidden gem, I almost feel guilty for the review as I'd like to keep this discovery to myself. My wife and I stayed here for a week.

We stayed at Cranford Cottages for a week from the 25 June. The only fault (if you call it a fault) is that we were in the Haywain and found the living room/kitchen to be too small otherwise everything was good. When we arrived the cottage was very clean and amenities were good. There was everything you need for self...

I was a bit worried when my husband booked this fishing holiday, I was worried the cottage might be a bit too basic and manly! No need, the cottage was extremely clean, and everything was of a good quality. There were only twin beds, but they are comfy, and I didn't get woken up at silly'o'clock when my husband went...

Well, our 4th time in 3 years at Cranford and this time we thought we'd have 2 weeks. Amazingly the weather was very untypically English and we had 2 whole weeks of sunshine. Cranford was, however, very typically Cranford, the place itself is always stunning and the hospitality of Nick, Paul and the little fella (Archie, that is) gets better...

There is something about Cranford Fisheries that will make you return year after year whether or not you catch one fish or hundreds. Just returned from a four day stay, unfortunately the wind was a rather annoying factor and the sun didn't really shine but we all caught various fish at various weights. You can't meet a nicer couple than...
