We stayed in the Tack Room which was really well equipped, just like being in the comfort of your own home. We would definitely stay again, The welcome pack of milk, butter, bread, eggs and chocolates was a really nice touch, and demonstrates just how much thought goes into the needs of their guests. Paula game to check on us...

We only spent a few nights at The Decoy Country Cottages and wished we could've stayed longer. The place was absolutely fantastic. There were extra touches which made the experience even better, there was a welcome pack of milk, butter, bread, eggs and chocolates etc. which we weren't expecting and there was also a communal cottage where we could gather...

I was booking the cottages for a group of 20-30 people and I found the whole experience fantastic. Paula couldn't have been more helpful in helping me organise the group as due to a numbers increase I had to add another house at short notice. The directions and helpful tips which I was sent well in advance of arrival were...

Travelled home from the UK for a family wedding. I can honestly say Decoy Cottages is the best self catering we have ever experienced, and believe me, we have had lots of experience of renting holiday cottages. We stayed in The Tack Room. It's clean, warm, welcoming. Lovely little welcoming pack with fresh bread, eggs, butter and milk. Nicely planned...

Stayed here for 2 nights for a wedding we were attending nearby. We stayed in the forge. 4 adults, 2 children and had loads of space. Place was spotless and had everything you could possibly need. Children loved the den . would love to book again in the summer and spend a little longer enjoying this beautiful setting.
