    “Everything we wanted and more!”

    What a beautiful rustic place Warren Cottage was and we can't wait to return. The private woods were wonderful with a little stream and rope swings. We toasted marshmellows and brought a telescope to watch the stars. We saw a barn owl, a weasel and so many other types of wildlife. The cottage itself was a rustic and authentic cottage and had everything we needed including an iron and hairdryer. The owners were so lovely to talk to too. There were wonderful places to eat locally. We cannot fault ...

    What a beautiful rustic place Warren Cottage was and we can't wait to return. The private woods were wonderful with a little stream and rope swings. We toasted marshmellows and brought a telescope to watch the stars. We saw a barn owl, a weasel and so many other types of wildlife. The cottage itself was a rustic and authentic cottage and had everything we needed including an iron and hairdryer. The owners were so lovely to talk to too. There were wonderful places to eat locally. We cannot fault this place as its an excellent place to escape the fast paced life, I guess maybe the WiFi was slow but this was a blessing as it meant devices were left off. Honestly a wonderful escape
