“Comfortable, spacious house in a perfect location.”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We couldn't have been more pleased with Welcome Cottage. It's very spacious (allowing privacy when desired) and comfortable. We spent a great deal of time in the conservatory, which was a natural place to congregate. The kitchen had everything we needed, the bedrooms were lovely (especially liked the beams) and the living room provided a cozy escape in which to read a book or check email. The cottage's location in the village is perfect: a 3 minute walk from the center of town, it retains a sense of privacy while accommodating my elderly parents (who were able to walk to various pubs and tea rooms throughout the week). For those who enjoy walking, there are numerous trails to other local villages (my favorite part of the holiday was strolling to a new village, enjoying the countryside). All in all, the holiday exceeded my expectations and Welcome Cottage was a large part of that.

“Excellent stay for a large family get together”
Reviewed March 29, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at Welcome Cottage for 12 of us. The cottage is really well-equipped and the owners have clearly put a lot of thought into what's needed to make for an easy, comfortable stay. It's also very well kept, clean and tidy.

The cottage is surprisingly large; some of the online photos may not fully do it justice. We spent virtually all the time in the conservatory; brilliant on a sunny day. The lounges themselves are probably a little small for all 12 at once (but there are 2 of them!)

Overall it was pretty good value for the size of property, it's 2 minutes from the village centre so everything is on hand. The signs/notices around the place, as referenced in other posts, are a little excessive but don't detract for the place (most of them could go in a handbook and seem less officious). A stay is recommended!
