    Made enjoyable..

    Fyne Court Cottage is a characterful, spacious house in a wonderful location. We liked the views across the garden to the meadows in the valley behind; the proximity of varied, gentle walking through woods and fields right from the door; the proximity to the local church - we went to the family service on Sunday and enjoyed listening to the bell-ringing practice one evening; the dark at night; the peace and quiet; the sound of owls. It was wonderful having two sitting rooms and we loved the extras such as the boot room/utility room and the little pantry. We thought that, since there is a large dining table in the main room, the small dining room would be better set up as a study; that was what we used it for, actually. The house had a very friendly quality and a feeling of lived history about it. We have already booked again.

    Peaceful location, lovely walks, spacious cottage to come home to, what more could you want. As mentioned before - a land line or some form of contact in emergency would be great. The Information Book says call 999 in an emergency but with no signal, no operating Wi-Fi and no land line this seems impossible - the neighbours were very accommodating.

    The standard of accommodation and the fantastic, quiet, rural location. I am very likely to book again. Other comment: - A little tricky to find the first time in the dark - some sort of more visible signage from the road

    High quality cottage - reliability of service. Al the cottages have been very high quality even when older or when things have gone wrong (fixed immediately by helpful staff). This means that you can enjoy the family holiday without worrying about accommodation. Books and games supplied - family get togethers meed these! Wifi was a surprise and used by some family (though for work!!) Peacefulness of location Thanks to your excellent team

    Roomy cottage

    Very peaceful, comfortable, roomy cottage with lovely surroundings, walks and wildlife. This is about our 10th NT holiday cottage but was disappointed as this was the first one with new modern furniture, I missed the uneven creaky floorboards, old dark oak furniture and the interesting 'antique' pictures and ornaments.
