“Beautiful cottage in unspoiled countryside.”
Reviewed 6 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This was our fourth stay at Pond Cottage. The location is superb, set in rolling green countryside on a secluded working sheep farm. Our hosts are both welcoming and friendly and always make our stay comfortable and relaxed. The cottage is private, has it's own garden and is the base for many walks across the farmland. I would not hesitate to recommend Pond Cottage.

“Really lovely country cottage”
Reviewed 3 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Very nice cottage - everything we could have hoped for. The highlights were the beautiful pond and the lovely ducks, the wood-burning fire, the big kitchen, and the eggs, jam and cider given to us by our generous host. John and Renate were very welcoming. We hope to be back soon!

“Perfect retreat”
Reviewed 17 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

My son and I decided to retreat from our respective work places and enjoy a good Father and Son weekend together. Pond Cottage was the perfect location. Rural but not isolated. Quiet but close to the farm and all the activity that provides. A lovely welcome from our friendly and helpful hosts. We were very impressed with our accommodation which is presented to a very high standard. Comfortable sitting room with welcoming wood burning stove. Modern kitchen with high quality fittings. Two lovely en suite bedrooms. Board games and extensive video library help with the evening entertainment. A great find, highly recommended. Hope to return in a warmer and drier season!

“A beautiful cottage in a beautiful location!”
Reviewed 22 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed here for three nights and it was a lovely experience. A very special cottage,perfectly decorated with every modern facility available. It would be my and my other halfs dream home! I especially loved the lambs in the adjacent field! We had a very warm welcome from the owners too. The woodburner fire was very cosy in the evening! I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone who appreciates beautufully renovated buildings and the open countryside!

“An excellent cottage and location”
Reviewed 12 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

A well presented and maintained holiday home, Pond Cottage is within the bounds of the owners farm and as such is an idyllic situation. The owners are very friendly as are the ducks and geese!
