“Wonderful cottage in a beautiful village!”
Reviewed December 29, 2014 for a stay in December 2014
person found this review helpful

My husband and I stayed at The Old Coach House from Sunday 21st December to Sunday 28th (over the Christmas period) and we absolutely LOVED it!

The owners have thought of absolutely everything, from your everyday essentials to dog beds and biscuits. They even decorated the cottage for us with a beautiful tree and cute little trimmings as it was Christmas! It really did feel very festive and cosy – especially with the log fire burning!

We had to contact Hannah the Housekeeper on one occasion as we had a bit of an issue working the shower – she was an absolute diamond and helped us out straight away!

The only thing that I think may need to be addressed is the Bin / Log Store…. it is used by two separate cottages but is located in the back garden of The Old Coach House. Unfortunately, during our stay someone from the other cottage had been to the Bin / Log store and left the gate open, which resulted in our dog getting out and disappearing for best part of an evening! Finally after hour’s trapesing around Maiden Newton shouting his name we found him alive and well (if a little shaken); however this could have been a completely different story! With this in mind, it might be worth adding a further note to the sign on the Bin / Log Store requesting that the gate is ‘kept closed after use’ to prevent this happening in the future.

Apart from this little mishap we had an absolutely wonderful time and would definitely return again and have already recommended to friends :)
