Reviews from our guests

There are several places where our guests leave us comments.

Not everyone writes in our books ( and they were plastic wrapped during the pandemic which meant many did not ) – but some people do write by hand in the visitor books in each cottage ( sometimes even signed by the pets! ) Sometimes people forget to write in the book and e mail us later. We faithfully copy these comments as they come in and we upload them here. The only thing we ever hide or alter is the full guest name and address for obvious reasons of privacy.

Secondly we encourage our guests to write about us on the site through which they booked (Trip Advisor, Air B and B,, Freetobook  etc)

As you will see we do have brilliant reviews. They are genuine, not a “fix” and  and its not that nothing ever goes wrong!  Although our standards are very high just occasionally, in the real world,  things are bound to happen. Machines fail, something breaks. The successive good reviews are  because if something does go awry, and if our guests tell us about it  during their stay,  we do move heaven and earth to fix it while those guests are still with us. People greatly appreciate this effort  on our part  and we guarantee  we always make it. If once in a while a review is less than wonderful it is  almost always the case that it was outside our control ( internet down or slow in the whole area for example)  or we were only advised about a problem after those guests had departed when there was nothing we could do to make it better.

This cottage was our home for a few days during our wedding weekend
We had a wonderful time and we thank you for your hospitality
Wonderful views

September in Catbrook - September 2023

Thank you for a lovely stay in the cottage.

The weather was kind to us with a few showers so we really enjoyed the setting.

We will certainly be back.

Both the Anchor and the Wild Hare provided good food and we would recommend them

Fabulous location! -

What a delightful cottage in a beautiful location!

We were only here for a few days, but the clean, cosy and well appointed cottage made for a relaxing break

I would be happy just spending a week on the benches at the front admiring the view

and reading a good book!

Thanks so much for the comfortable and welcoming cottage
