A perfect escape from any city madness, although we stayed over 3 days we left feeling completely relaxed and refreshed. Renate and John were superb with bundles of true country hospitality thrown in, added to that they showed our 4 year old daughter the in's and out's of a working farm with lamb feeding early mornings and always on hand to show supervised fun exploration of their extensive working farm. Something every city child should be shown at least once a year, in our case it will be twice as we will certainly book for this summer again!

The cottage has a perfect mix of old and new interior, but retains that feeling of a rural rustic dwelling. Although nearly open plan on the ground floor the underfloor heating and a log fire were 100% adequate in dealing with the January sub 5'C weather. The bedrooms were equally impressive with exposed roof beams and wood as far as the eye can see, worth noting that the beds were really comfortable, perfect for cosy morning sleep ins.

Location is ideal and is in easy reach to the coast and other vibrant villages, but secluded enough to feel you are 100's of miles away from civilisation.

We wanted a long weekend away from London and we certainly found it in Pond Cottage, our expectations were blown away.

We will see you again soon Renate and John, very soon!
