For someone who has 2 grades of enjoyment, 'not good' and 'ok' I've now got three. I've just included 'smashing' into my vocabulary. Next years visit already booked. Need I say any more?
Spent lovely 4 days at Kirkwood Cottages. Location is quiet, secluded with beautiful woodland walks. Accommodation was extremely clean and comfortable (home from home). Will certainly b revisiting again soon. Loved it! :D x
Dalton Green Farmhouse is extremely well equipped and very comfortable with lots of extras and thoughtful touches which really enhanced our stay. Our welcome was warm and it was like going round a show home when being guided round on arrival. We were so impressed with the large kitchen/living area that we chose to have several relaxing evenings in, watching golf on Sky or listening to music or simply chatting with G&T or glass of wine in hand!.

The two weeks we've been here went so quickly, it felt as if it was only two days! The staff is so friendly and helpful, the area is so peaceful,and yet, there's so much to do.

It is a very nice spot lots to do and the staff are friendly and always on hand if you need anything and we got fresh veg and eggs well worth the price
