    "We loved the big garden, for cricket and water fights! We loved the annex for grandma and granddad to get a lie in! (Although permanently on heating was a bit hard on warmer days and nights)"

    " We loved the big garden, for cricket and water fights! We loved the annex for grandma and granddad to get a lie in! (Although permanently on heating was a bit hard on warmer days and nights) One small thing in these difficult times is maybe to supply hand soap at more of the sinks "
    Mr Howard ‐ 1 May 2021
    " However, it would have been helpful if there had ben at least a couple of dishwasher tablets to get us started, a kitchen roll and more than one dishtowel for 12 people. Alternatively warn visitors that they shield bring such items. There were no instructions for the TV. "
    Mr White
    "The owners should promote more the superb gated back garden/field. Children and adults had hours of fun playing sport and generally being outside in a safe environment. One highlight was stargazing spotting numerous shooting stars and satellites.2 minor negatives games room light too low spot light for darts board would be good and a short cue for pools table. Family had a great holiday good weather helped."
    Mr Leroux
    " It easily accommodated 12 people and looked like it had only recently been renovated. Good quality towels, bedding and toiletries were provided and it was spotlessly clean. The grounds opened up into a large area and this was great for outdoor games. It had an electrically operated gated driveway and ample parking for 6+ cars. Communication with the owner was very good and we have no hesitation in recommending West View Cottage "

    "I think the description on the web site could be improved as the property far exceeds the description."

    " I think the description on the web site could be improved as the property far exceeds the description. No mention of Netflix, sky Q, trampoline, games or football net "
