“Perfect!”
Reviewed 16 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Wisteria Cottage was perfect for our weekend stay - just wish it had been longer! The cottage is very nicely furnished, very comfortable and ideal for the dogs with the secluded garden.

Wish we had found this property years ago and will definitely be coming back again. Very friendly welcome by the owners John and Melanie and a good pub within walking distance - what more could anyone want!

“One of the Best”
Reviewed 30 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

I have never been to this area before - I have missed out !!
As usual, prior to booking I try to find out all about the cottage and area I am to stay in and hope (as it's a risk) I am not going to be disappointed. Not so this time my Son (aged 41) and I had a holiday to remember. We were met on arrival by Melanie and her welcome set the tone for our stay. She introduced us to the cottage which had everything we needed including a small enclosed garden, safe for our dog. The cottage is on a quite lane, 10min from the village shop and great pub for food.
Our two weeks were during a heat-wave, no rain. We went out every day visiting valleys, coves, castles, rivers and villages in the area, there was so much to see and without travelling far. We went on walks from the cottage also a wander around the grounds. Always with a camera.
Can't wait for our next visit as we have left so much behind.
