Our welcome was warm and sincere. Stayed in the shepherds hut on a freezing night with lights twinkling in the garden. Wonderfully snug. Awoke to a view of the sun glinting off the frost on the surrounding fields. Magical. Breakfast was full of flavour.... perfectly cooked with 'proper' ingredients including probably the tastiest bacon and sausages we have eaten in...

I was lucky enough to find this beautiful place when I came to Brightwell cum Sotwell to visit the Bach Remedies Centre for a course to learn about the Bach Remedies. When I arrived late on the Monday evening/night I had received a welcoming message guiding me where to go to find them easily. Set in beautiful location off a...

My husband and I have just returned from our third visit to Hope Cottage. We took advantage of Sue's expertise as she toured us around the countryside. We couldn't have enjoyed it more! Sue and Bob are the most excellent hosts in the world. They make you feel right at home--only better. You are never asked to wash dishes! We...

We had a sublime stay at Hope Cottage. The room was lovely (proper pillows and duvet!) and the breakfast was fantastic.
