    “We stayed for a week and the house and grounds were beautiful.”

    We chose this property because of the land with us having an energetic dog. We saw lots of wildlife including muntjac deer hedgehogs rabbits and many different species of birds. We went on many walks through the 3 acres attached to the cottage. The only thing I would suggest is that due to the ongoing effort of rewilding the photographs on the website should be updated as the grounds are very different too what was expected when we chose this cottage.

    We chose this property because of the land with us having an energetic dog. We saw lots of wildlife including muntjac deer hedgehogs rabbits and many different species of birds. We went on many walks through the 3 acres attached to the cottage. The only thing I would suggest is that due to the ongoing effort of rewilding the photographs on the website should be updated as the grounds are very different too what was expected when we chose this cottage. The grass ideally around the house could do too be a bit more manicured as the garden isn’t as good as it should be which made it very difficult too keep the grass out of the cottage. We cleared the patio for our own comfort as we sat out most of the time in the garden with it being very hot. We would like to return in the future as we loved the property and the area was very good too visit lots too do and see.

    I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay and saw all the resident animals! We will update the photographs, as you are right. The land around the yurt does look quite different now that we have added a firepit and let the grass grow long (with paths winding through it). We will be there in two weeks and will take some new photographs. The challenge with taking a nature-led approach is that things change over time, so photographs are always out of date! We have asked the gardener to look at the area around the house and ensure that it is kept in good order. I think the recent rain has meant that things have grown faster than usual. Hopefully, when you return, you will see it looking better. Property Owner
