We had a lovely week at The Nook with our puppy. The cottage is a good size with a nice garden at the front and back, and is really well equipped (especially the kitchen) - it felt very much like home from home. The dog loved it too!

We had a very enjoyable holiday. Very clean, and if we needed anything we had Andrew next door who is the house and garden manager. The garden is beautiful but keep an eye on your dog as there may be escape routes through the trees, however we have a small inquisitive terrier and we had no problems. We will be booking this property again.

This was our second visit to this cottage and the welcome and friendliness of the caretaker and owner was as generous as last time. Nothing seems to be too much trouble.
