    "My husband, 4 month old and I all enjoyed our stay at The Old Cow Shed. The cottage is cosy and comfortable and had everything we needed. It was a bit of a drive to get anywhere but we liked that and enjoyed the country roads. We'd recommend and would stay here again."
    Bob ‐ 3 Nov 2018
    "We had a very relaxing stay and would recommend this accommodation. Dog friendly which was a hit for us."

    "Wonderful cottage that was well equipped."
    Michaela ‐ 11 Oct 2018
    "The location & accommodation were perfect! The owners were not intrusive & very lovely. For 2 people and a Yorkie- this was ideal and we would highly recommend staying here for a peaceful break"
    Glen ‐ 5 Oct 2018
    "The Old Cow Shed was comfortable and the owners, who live next door were interested and pleasant without being obtrusive. Thorndon is pleasant with an excellent pub in the Black Horse and a useful community shop. The Wi-fi provided was good as were the TV and DVD player with a good selection of DVDs. The bathroom has adaptations for a disabled person. The WC is rather high with a block of wood to rest your feet on! Helpful printed information is provided. This is the first holiday cottage that I understood the central heating - so thanks to the owners for that. The place was comfortably warm. Parking was conveniently just outside the front door."
    Donna ‐ 10 Sep 2018
    "We had a lovely stay in the cow shed, and the local pub serves good food"
    Helen ‐ 5 Sep 2018
    "A lovely weekend here."
    Carol ‐ 14 Jul 2018
    "A really relaxing friendly atmosphere the owners couldn’t be more helpful but left us alone if we didn’t want to be disturbed the dogs love it in the cowshed when we got there there was cake, cider and milk waiting for us and dog treats waiting for the dogs we will definitely be back thank you"
    Allan ‐ 24 Jun 2018
    "Our third time and always very good"
    Mark ‐ 5 May 2018
    "The Old Cow Shed was very comfortable and warm. The weather was very wet and cold while we were there and it was good to come back to a warm haven. Our only comment would be that if you stayed for longer than a week a washing machine and drying facilities would be useful. It is a private cottage and the owners are there if you need them but don’t interfere at all. Our dogs loved the lovely local walks."
    Simon ‐ 11 Apr 2018
    "If you're looking for a modern, sparkling, state of the art, brand new cottage or conversion then this isn't for you; however, if a tastefully renovated farm building in a semi- rural setting with all the facilities you would expect, excellent under floor heating and a super- king bed appeals to you, then this is just the ticket! Bring the dog, who is most welcome, and everyone is happy!We had a lovely stay in April, thank you Louise and Geir, we wish we had been able to stay longer."
    Vincent ‐ 3 Apr 2018
    "The cottage was lovely, there were some bottles of cider to welcome us along with some provisions such as milk and sugar etc. The owners were fantastic and very welcoming. They were on hand to give information on the area but did not intrude on our privacy. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone ."
