A beautiful quiet location, perfect for a chilled holiday.

Reviewed by Colin 18th May 2019

The cottage is well presented and has everything that is required. The phone and internet connections work well, which is important to us. The hostess is quietly aware of everything that happens, without intruding. This is a lovely friendly place to stay. Our second stay was every bit as enjoyable as the first - and the shortbread on the welcome paRead moreck was delicious. Hide

Everything was perfect from start to finish. It was well equipped and comfortable. Very clean and tidy. Just gave me a great place to relax and unwind in very quiet surroundings. The owners are such a nice couple that are there if you need them but don't disturb you.

We love Waggon Cottage. Peaceful and calming great place to recharge your batteries. Our dog loves the outdoor space too.

Perfect for a relaxing holiday with dog.

Reviewed by Stuart 1st September 2018

Any complaint regarding this accommodation would just be nit picking. We had a lovely and very relaxing holiday. The cottage was spotlessly clean and extremely private.

Reviewed by Dilys 21st July 2018

Lovely cottage with a covered patio which was greatly appreciated as we were there in extremely hot weather. Enclosed garden ideal for our dog. We were warmly welcomed by our hosts and our viewing or the wagon collection was most interesting. We have already booked to return next year!
