We were in Fennel Folly, which is on the first floor, up a few easy steps. All windows were velux ceiling but despite no 'view' as such from them Fennel Folly was light and airy. It had large double glass doors so we could see outside to the fields with rabbits munching the grass and from the little balcony level... More

We wanted somewhere quiet and within easy reach of the nature reserve. It couldn't have been better. the house was spacious, clean, well maintained and with the sun still warm enough to sit outside we took advantage of the private patio area.

We booked in for two nights in order to attend a wedding nearby. The room was large and although not inexpensive, seemed to be worth the price. Disappointingly, the bed creaked noisily with every movement and was as hard as a board. Oddly, breakfast on the first day had to be taken at 09.00, or not at all. Worse still,... More

We stayed in Carrot Cottage for 5 nights and had a fabulous time. The cottage was spotless and extremely comfortable and had everything you could wish for. We were very warmly welcomed and Sally is the perfect hostess. Lovely location and lots of great walks. We would highly recommend Broccoli Bottom and look forward to returning.
