    "Lovely cottage with good attention to comfort and overall facilities. Great location for a peaceful relaxing break. Recommend visitors try the wonderful farm shop in Market Harborough."
    Graeme ‐ 17 Aug 2019
    "This is without doubt a 5* cottage in a super location (both immediate and the surrounding area) that has only one draw back. It is a semi and there is very little, if any, sound proofing between the two cottages. Luckily we only had neighbours for two nights of our stay but it was very clear that as we could easily listen to their every word without any trouble at all it could be a severe draw back. I appreciate that it would not be a simple task to sound proof the wall but suggest that it needs to be done - we would probably return for further stays but would be put off doing so by the chance of "noisy neighbours". One very minor point - it would be useful to have a file with emergency numbers (doctors, dentists, hospitals etc) as well as location of local shops and good eating places plus information on recycling and bin days..... But as I said at the start very much a 5* cottage. Thank you."

    "Having stayed at Wagtail cottage many times,it never disappoints. Perfect for get togethers with family and lovely walks along the canal with the dogs. We will be returning very soon!!"

    "A lovely place especial if you want to relax."
    Yvonne ‐ 30 Apr 2019
    "Enjoyed a fabulous weekend at Wagtail Cottage. Beautiful cottage set in tranquil surroundings. Julie, the owner, was on hand for any query. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage and would definitely return."
    Jac ‐ 25 Apr 2019
    "Absolutely amazing cottage. Owner so helpful and attentive. Always available. Visually and location wise one of my favourite cottages I’ve ever visited. Only slight issue is that it’s such a shame nothing can be done to sound proof the cottages better. The adjoining nature means that sound travels throughout the whole block and you’re at the mercy of the first person awake and the last person to sleep. The location of the tv, on the adjoining wall, means you can hear the programme being watched by your neighbours. Word perfectly. Would be perfect holiday accommodation, if you were hiring both out as one big group."
    Jennifer ‐ 11 Apr 2019
    "Overall lovely, clean and spacious cottage. Could have done with a few hooks in bathroom for towels. 3 adults sharing same bathroom meant not all towels could be hung on radiator and only one hook on door.Would recommend cottage. We were lucky that there was no one next door so very quiet. from other guests comments sometimes noisy neighbours."
    Alan ‐ 8 Apr 2019
    "We had a lovely time at Wagtail Cottage, quality time with the family. Had to cut our stay a night short as my husband was unwell, but apart from that it was great. Hope to return some time."
    Andrew ‐ 20 Mar 2019
    "Wagtail Cottage is excellent. Unfortunately our stay was spoilt to an extent by very inconsiderate people in the adjoining cottage who were extremely noisy. Would stay here again though as no problems with the cottage itself."
    Christine ‐ 29 Jan 2019
    "10 of us have just got back from a long weekend away at both cottages it was an amazing weekend everyone loved it. Very clean, hot tub was amazing and could of asked for it to be any different. Thank you!"
    Colin ‐ 27 Jan 2019
    "Cottage was in a lovely position. Easy to find. Very spacious and comfortable.A few negative niggles;No welcome pack, not even a pint of milk, which is fairly standard now.Garden is not secure. It is a ranch type fence that dogs (and toddlers) could just walk through.No manual explaining eg how to work oven, change radiator temperature, when to put out bins, good local pubs etc.Overall a very pleasant stay and these niggles can be easily remedied."
    Samantha ‐ 12 Jan 2019
    "We have stayed at Wagtail three times now, absolutely fabulous cottage, love the area lovely walks with the dogs to the locks we will be back later in the year."
    Valerie ‐ 11 Dec 2018
    "Brilliant. Took both cottages for an early family Christmas. Plenty of room for us all. Dog enjoyed the stay too. Walks from the cottages to Foxton locks."
    Vita ‐ 2 Dec 2018
    "We had the best time at Wagtail Cottage! Julie - the owner - greeted us and ensured we had everything we needed for the duration of our stay; she was also always just a text message away if we had any questions at all. Julie was extremely accommodating of our needs and we felt really looked after. The cottage is located in beautiful countryside, far from the road but near to shops and great pubs. Would highly recommend staying here!"
    Dorota ‐ 28 Nov 2018
    "We spent there charming 3days. Julie - the owner of the property was very nice and helpful. Cottage very clean and tastefully, rustic decorated. We will recommend it to everyone."
