We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Your accommodation is truly outstanding. The presentation is a credit to you and the location is simply lovely. We have travelled many countries and have to say it was a real pleasure to arrive at the gates of your property at the end of the day knowing we were coming into such a peaceful, cosy and homely cottage. Thank you Fiona.

From the moment we stepped foot through the door we were in awe of how beautiful this perfect little cottage was. We wanted for nothing. Fiona has thought of everything. Everything was wonderful. So wonderful we will definitely be coming back and making sure we tell everyone about it. This perfect lille diamond hideaway from the world was the perfect get away and it was the best honeymoon EVER! Thank you so much Fiona, we will never forget you or your stunning cottage.

This place is beyond amazing. We subscribe to Dwell Magazine and so when I'm on vacation I dream of walking into a centrefold of a place like this. First of all the bucolic countryside setting was heavenly. The privacy and seclusion was profoundly peaceful. I haven't even started on the inside yet. Let me start with one the most overlooked aspects of hotels...lighting. The lighting was a dream just like an art gallery! I was looking for one thing that was off but I couldn't find anything of the sort. It was done in impeccable taste. The bed... well lets just say the best sleep so far on my trip and I've stayed in some very posh hotels. Fiona's communication was great. A very classy person and place. You can't go wrong with this place.

First time I haven't been "tricked" by a photo on a website! it's even more beautiful in reality! Wow...heaven on earth. Feel instant at home when you walk in the beautiful interior designed little house. Plus the warm welcome of Fiona makes it complete! Should keep this place a secret, but have to tell friends about this!

Every little detail in this perfect cottage has been done to the best standard. Peaceful, unique and the best cottage surroundings i've ever seen.
Made very welcome and it's rare to say nothing could be faulted, but this was true bliss from the first drive in the gate.
You deserve huge success.
A true gem
The heart shows in all your efforts, never change a thing.

Fiona and Jeremy are awesome hosts, and their cottages are absolutely beautiful (with great views of the sunsets). They showed us around the farms, their sheep and their pigs. Good for a relaxing week in the country!


Review of The Buttery & The Old Dairy

Posted on by Katie NCustomer stayed Nov 2016

Absolutely stunning, modern barn in an equally lovely location; ideal for a relaxing time-out from the everyday. The barn has been beautifully renovated, felt both spacious and cosy with the roaring fireplace. So many little extras included - bacon, eggs, bread, orange juice, white wine, a variety of snacks, tealights, the comfiest slippers. A well stocked kitchen makes it easy to prepare meals in or, if you fancy going out, there are a couple of very good pubs in walking distance. Looking out of the glass window also made for entertaining country viewing. I honestly can't wait to go back.

Our stay was even better than we could have expected. Totally luxurious fittings and furnishings, with a lovely selection of nibbles in the fridge waiting for us! Fiona was the perfect host, giving us lifts to and from the local station up the road, which had direct trains to London Kings Cross, making our country escape incredible easy. The surroundings of the cottage were gorgeous and totally peaceful. Lovely local pubs were just a short walk away, and Cambridge city center - a picturesque cycle along the River Cam. Fiona made sure our every need was catered for, safe to say we'll be back!

Posted on by Michela SCustomer stayed Nov 2016

We really loved it, such a beautiful cottage all for ourselves! Just what we needed for a relaxing weekend with my partner escaping the busy city life. The level of attention to details and decor was exceptional! Fiona's homemade chocolate flapjack was a divine and unexpected treat! We will surely come back!
