"Unfortunately the owners are rather economical with the truth when they say that the property is 'on a road'. Not only is it a very fast road used as a short cut and with a speed limit of 60mph but the bedrooms are in effect around 12 ft from it. The road is also in bad repair and has quite a camber on it which means vehicles tend to use the centre more, with wheels going over the cats eyes thus making more noise. the traffic from 6am and late at night means that it is almost impossible to get any sleep. They also state that the railway line is half a mile away, it is much much closer. by car going round the road way it is only 3/10 of a mile away and it is directly across an open field so i would estimate that, as the crow flies, it is less than 500yards away. Not only this, it is the main 'Great Northern' line and has trains, bothe diesel and electric, going at high speed constantly. Then at night the line is used by goods trains, very noisy and very long.A few other niggles, The light in the double room takes a good five to ten minutes to be bright enough to see by, also a net curtain in that room would be desirable as it looks out directly on to the owners property windows. The decking is nice but needs a gate at the entrance and a closure at the other end otherwise it is completely insecure if you have children or, like us, a dog.I am unsure as to the reason for a wet room because the property is definitely not suitable for anyone with a disability, a shower cubicle would be far better. there was no wardrobe storage in the twin room. the built in fridge was the noisiest i have ever heard, we had to turn it down to stop it running constantly. Just after we arrived, the owner came in and introduced herself, she said she liked to "show guests around the cooker"! As it turned out the cooker was awful, the hob was ceramic and had touch controls which only worked occasionally, myself, my husband and our visiting son all tried and managed once in a dozen tries to make it work. The hob is also very badly chipped on one side meaning that if you are not careful you could sustain a nasty cut when wiping down the worktop.Sadly, the noise problem was the worst thing, it really spoiled the holiday and, due to lack of sleep, i ended up with a migraine, not very good when you are on holiday."

"We had a lovely weeks break in this Lodge. It is exceptionally clean and tidy and, as my husband is disabled, it had ample room for him to move about in without any worries. The bathroom was exactly what you would require for someone with restricted mobility. It is a bit tight getting the car in from the road, but nothing an experienced driver would have a problem with. The grass at the back was mowed the day after we arrived, which was a great help. Pack wellies though because of the wildlife using this area too and it's a little uneven under foot. The road and rail noise didn't trouble us particularly and the view at the back from the lounge/kitchen area is lovely. We saw Muntjac and Roe deer daily, the occasional rabbit and to see the cows mooching about in the field beyond is very calming and peaceful. There were about 12 cows in all, male, female and a couple of youngsters and it was lovely to see them just getting on with their routine.We had our dog with us, who I did keep on her extending lead in the back garden, purely because she is just a youngster and wants to explore everything. We found a lovely place for her morning walks at Great Fen, nearby, where she was off the lead and loved it. It takes just over an hour to do the complete circuit.Well worth a visit, whether you have dogs or children or neither, is Ferry Meadows country park near Peterborough. Only a short drive and parking starts at £1.50 for the first hour and half. Lovely walks there, it's a very calm and tranquil place with a great big lake and lovely cafe doing all sorts of goodies."

"The cottage itself is quite nice but in need of a bit of TLC. The downstairs bathroom door was slightly warped and in need of planing, there was a water stain on the carpet in the downstairs bedroom and the shared outdoor gas bbq was filthy when we arrived. It was a hot weekend when we were there but there were no fans in the property and when you opened the door/windows the property was inundated with flies - a simple fly screen at the door would have helped. The upstairs bathroom smelt damp throughout our stay, despite opening windows to let some air in.Also, shared outdoor space is fine if your neighbours are friendly - ours were not. Their children prevented ours from playing on toys provided by the property, they hogged the pool and caused a confrontation over the booking system which they claimed not to understand. Perhaps if this had been managed by the owner rather than visitors it could have been prevented.It's a nice property, with plenty of space for youngsters to let off steam but it could be an outstanding property in time. The owner is lovely however, and incredibly helpful with her local knowledge."

"The best cottage we have ever stayed in. Alison was the perfect host who made you feel welcome and at home. The cottage is very spacious, 3 good sized bedrooms, fantastic fully fitted kitchen with plenty of crockery and utensils, there was even tea, coffee, milk, a bowl of fruit, 2 bottles of wine, orange juice and other essentials provided by Alison . Large wetroom with many toiletries provided. Beautiful lounge with extremely large sofas. Very tastefully decorated. Excellent quiet location. Cottage was spotlessly clean. we feel that there is nothing that Alison can do to better this cottage she should be proud of her 5 star cottage. Special thanks to Alison for Davids birthday card and cake, and for the apples from the trees We will not hesitate to return or recommend anybody to book this cottage. "

"The location was very good for our purposes and the space,cleanliness and general appearance was good. However, we had a couple of issues, i.e. although we kept the windows shut and the garden doors rarely open we were plagued a bit by flies and did wonder if their was a nest somewhere in the house or there was an aperture where they were getting in - a word in the owners ear might be a good idea. The water pressure in the showers were very weak, but may be there is an issue in that area. Presentation- wise, it was pretty good, but the window frames were a bit dirty and needed repainting. It just let the presentation down a bit. Otherwise, we were very comfortable and appreciated the welcome pack. We would stay there again as the location was very good for us."
