“Cosy, well appointed stone cottage with lovely garden”
Reviewed 1 August 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We were 6 adults who stayed for 5 nights at Woodlands during June. The weather was not always the best (no surprise), but coming home each evening to the cottage was warm and welcoming. On the 2 evenings we did have fine weather, we set up the supplied BBQ on the lawn and talked until the star came out. The house has one master bedroom with large bed, another large room with two single beds, and a smaller room with 'adult bunks'. I stayed in the bunk room, and while comfortable, it is a little on the small side if you have suitcases in there too. Other than that, everything was perfect. Lovely living room, a kitchen that had all the appliances we needed, washing machine and dryer, and a bathroom upstairs and down. The location is just off the main road, but within easy walking distance to the pub, restaurants, and shops. Overall a very pleasant stay,

We are so pleased that you all had a great time at Woodlands and didn't let the weather get in the way of your good time, and had a lovely property to retreat to at the end of the day regardless! We certainly hope you return to enjoy the place again soon.

“To be Avoided”
Reviewed 25 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My wife, son and I and a friend visited this property, and left at the end of week 1 of 2. Deisel smell permeated the house. Furniture was terribly soiled; we cleaned it. When we cleaned it, we used the Dyson cleaner that was already full, never emptied of old dirt. The washing machine required an extension cord from an outside room to an enclosed porch. The double master bedroom mattress was nearly unusable; it was like a roll out bed mattress. The kitchen was moderated equipped. Bathrooms were acceptable. There were, however, dead rats decaying under floorboards, the smell was very obvious. We all left with lung infections; our son went home to California with a bronchial disease. We complained to the agent, Sykes Cottages. Our two weeks was refunded to us and they arranged another cottage of our choice. We have photos of this experience and could share.

This is. Wonderful rental, with everything you could ever need. (Had to buy a snow shovel) . We stayed over Christmas, had family and friends for Christmas Day. Built snowmen. Watched films all snuggled up beside the log fire.
The tree was glistening when we arrived.
The local eateries are near, and good -with range of prices and also take always. We ate in mostly as kitchen had everything !!
Beds comfy and warm, and everything to very high standard, and very clean.
Cannot fault anything. Even red squirrel made a number of visits to the bird table.
And is the most amazingly romantic place to accept a proposal of marriage!!!!
