We had a fantastic time at Janet and Gabriel's place! We gave them plenty of unusual requests and they were really helpful and didn't even judge us for wanting to use the bar for a Eurovision themed party (thanks for your tolerance!) its a really great getaway spot to chill out, sing some cheesy karaoke and enjoy some country air.
My five friends and i had a thoroughly enjoyable stay in Janet & Gabriel's beautiful cottage. If anything, the pictures don't do it justice! As stated in the description and the other reviews, there are great entertainment facilities but on the other hand, if it is a peaceful trip away you are looking for the cottage delivers in this regard also. I would highly recommend this property and hopefully will stay here again in the future.
Beautiful house in a beautiful setting and the pictures do not do it justice. Spacious and clean and so homely. Everything you need to stay in comfort.
And the attached bar, The Cock Pheasant, is a massive bonus with large screen, karaoke, dart board, pool table and incredible sound system to boot. If you can play the piano, even better.
The views of the surrounding countryside are delightful and you can see the sea in the distance.
And the hosts, Gabriel and Janet are delightful and nothing is too much trouble. Very warm and welcoming and I received with great glee a beautiful hamper basket of festive fayre on Christmas Day. Cannot recommend enough this listing.
Wonderful stay with wonderful hosts in a very tranquil and relaxing setting. Janet and Gabriel were very kind and helpful throughout.
About the Host, Janet
Gabriel and I are outgoing, friendly people. We love food, travel and meeting new people. I am also a golfing widow but do like to spend time in front my laptop writing.
We have been letting for many years and we know a thing or two about making people feel welcome and comfortable.
We take a hands off approach to hosting. We'll be in touch before you arrive to ensure you know where you're going. When you arrive, we'll meet you at the property to introduce ourselves, show you around and hand over the keys. Of course, we are available if you have any questions during your stay.
