Reviews

Booked last minute for a long weekend. The cottage was clean and absolutely lovely, great location in the centre of town. Beautiful garden and I can see how the two properties can work for 6 people, although we didn’t use peppercorn cottage. A few minor considerations it’s an old house with uneven floors and wouldn’t suit anyone who’d struggle with this, there were a few things that could do with an update, the kitchen is showing wear and tear as is some of the furniture, however not so bad that I wouldn’t visit again. The property is dog friendly and very secure for your pooch. Really enjoyed our stay and dealing with the staff who were very friendly and helpful pre stay.

Thank you Amanda for your great review, we are delighted you had a lovely stay. Bag End and Peppercorn Cottage is an older property with many quirks and traditional features, which often draw guests to our properties. We are glad this did not impact on your stay and hope to welcome you back soon.
