"We had a great time at Throstle Hall Cottage - unfortunately it rained all weekend but despite that we had a lot of fun. The cottage was fantastic - the living space upstairs is particularly lovely and suited us really well. It was a great surprise for my dad's 70th birthday and a wonderful weekend.
W. family, January 2011"
We had a lovely time in the cottage over New Year, it is even more beautiful "in person" than on the pictures, we found it be spacious, well equipped and very homely. It was ideal for us. We visited the tea room, and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. We were very fortunate to have such good weather, we did find the drive down the field to the cottage, and in particular up the field again a bit tricky from time to time, but it was all part of the adventure!!
All in all it is a wonderful retreat, and would highly recommend it; it was the perfect way to begin the year. 2011 New Year visitors
