We have stayed here twice before & this year 2015 will be our third time here, a great get away from it all holiday location, everything you could possibly want for a relaxing peaceful holiday also well equipped. There is nothing to fault about the cottage the owners Wyn & Ian Gargate are very nice people & very friendly, we stayed here the first time in the 1990's & also in 2000's , so we are lokking forward very much to staying here again this year 2015.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed April 20, 2015 for a stay in July 2014

We just love Brockscar! We are Australian travellers who visit the UK each year and keep returning to Brockscar Cottage. It is beautifully remote and quiet, we enjoy eating breakfast and watching the birds feeding outside the window. The cottage is immaculate and the owners very friendly. We are looking forward to returning in July 2015.

“Peaceful comfortable cottage”
Reviewed April 20, 2015 for a stay in May 2013

A lovely location, and perfect holiday cottage. Have stayed here many times over the last 15 years or so, and will continue to return here in the future.
The cottage is very comfortable with everything that you need for a 'home away from home' and is kept exceptionally clean.
The owners are very friendly and helpful, and have become friends over the years.
I can't recommend highly enough.

We have constantly revisited the cottage over a period of years, often three times within twelve months. It's attractions are numerous, the sheer beauty of its unspoilt surroundings,it's pleasantly positioned escape from unwanted intrusion yet satisfactory proximity to any required services,the ever-present varied wildlife, all combined with the exceptionally high standard of accommodation provided by the genuinely solicitous hosts Wyn and Ian Gargate.
