This place was fantastic. Jer and Mer gave us a warm welcome upon arrival and showed us around the place. There was a fantastic welcome basket with lots of fresh local produce. The house is a good size for a group; we had some lovely meals around the kitchen table and some lovely evenings around the log burner. The house was easy to find and the location is pretty good too (not far from the big supermarkets in the car and there are a few pubs a short walk away). The kitchen has lots of pots and pans although we could only find one tiny chopping board and not many kitchen knives (this made large meal preparation quite difficult). There were lots of board games and a selection of dvd's and books to keep us occupied as well as a docking station to play music through. Overall my friends and I had a great time at this house. With the weather being terrible the log burner in the front room was utilised pretty much non-stop! I can imagine this place would be fantastic in the summer when you can make proper use of the hot tub. Thanks very much Jer and Mer.
Arrived Friday 15th April, cottage very easy to find and Jer was kindly waiting for us. A hearty welcome and a very generous welcome hamper which was gratefully received after a 5 hour journey with two dogs. In fact, as we took two dogs, Jer had even included a box of gravy bones in the hamper - a lovely touch. Views across the resevoir were stunning, hot tub was fabulous and the gardens were all completely enclosed so we didn't have to worry about the dogs at all. We were in fact the only people in the lane which was lovely too. We had plenty of room (party of 5 plus dogs). Kitchen had everything required and more (even plastic glasses for use in the hot tub or picnics). I would recommend this place and will definitely be booking again soon. I did read a recent review and took a couple of carving knives and chopping boards but that is nothing. I asked Jer if there was a slow cooker (which there was) but he had replaced it with a brand new one for our visit. If only all owners could be like that. Thank you again to Jer and Mer (although didn't meet Mer), see you again soon.
The house was lovely, very clean and well equipped. The hot tub was great and we thoroughly enjoyed it and purple bathrobes were supplied for each person. The log fire was easy to light and so cosy. We all had a go in the sauna which was fun. Jeremy was a great host and showed us how to use everything. A lovely hamper was supplied on the first day with all the essentials for a first breakfast. We stayed for my Dad's 80th birthday and he loved it. The views over the reservoir was superb and we could find no faults with the lovely weekend we had. Thanks very much!
