“Not to be missed”
Reviewed 8 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

If you are looking to stay in this area,look no further than The Cottage,it is a wonderful place to stay. It is incredibly spacious,exceptionally furnished,clean and comfortable and in a great location for exploring the many places this area has to offer. I stayed here with my husband and our dog and it was absolutely ideal. We only came back home today after a wonderful week's stay but I just want to tell everyone how brilliant it is!

“Made our holiday special”
Reviewed 8 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Stayed at the cottage for a week with extended family ; 4 kids and 2 adults. Plenty of room for all, and would go back again. Lovely cottage, with lots of little bonuses (garden for the kids, plenty of bathroom space, great kitchen and living space). Also located in a lovely village with good couple of pubs, nearby park, good shops and central for lots of great day trips out. Cant thank the owners enough for the way it was handled / communicated either. Thanks Richard and Wendy, from all of us.

“A fantastic spacious cottage with everything you could need”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have just returned from a lovely weekend break at the cottage. It is a spacious cottage with everything you could possible need on a self catering break. All the rooms are well furnished and done to a very high standard.
We went in summer and the weather was beautiful and we sat in the lovely big garden having a BBQ but I'm sure it would be as fabulous in the colder months having under floor heating and a log burner in the lounge.
Richard and Wendy live next door and what wonderful hosts they were. Not intruding at all but on hand to answer any questions or provide advice on the area.
I would definitely recommend this wonderful cottage to anyone.

Hi - we have just realised that we have not responded to this kind review - thank you very much. Also, although you did not comment on the bath water, this is an opportunity to say that the central heating engineers have serviced the system & the problem is now resolved. Best wishes - Wendy & Richard

“Beautiful house”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This is a beautiful house in a lovely quiet location but within easy reach of many attractions.
There was plenty of space for our extended family and the garden was great for all of us as well as the dog! The furnishings are immaculate and decor lends itself to a restful break.
It was somewhat irritating not to have had enough hot water (nowhere near enough to fill the lovely bath) but we made do with showers.
All in all though, a lovely break for all ages.

“Delightful Cottage and a Warm Welcome”
Reviewed 23 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We stayed in The Cottage for Half Term and found it equipped and furnished to an exceptionally high standard. On arrival we received a kind and warm welcome from the owners.

The location of The Cottage is excellent and was ideal for exploring the Sherwood Forest and local attractions with children, grandparents and perhaps a pet with the owner's permission. We only wished we could have stayed longer in the accommodation and explored a little more! We are sure to return, and I would highly recommend The Cottage to others without hesitation.

Thank you again to the owners for a wonderful stay.
