I Love travelling, hope to visit Estonia and Canada in the next year . . .
Both Helen and Tora are extremely helpful and go that extra mile to help you.
The house is so peaceful due to its beautiful setting. You feel very safe there.
The bed is extremely comfortable!
The shower is weak/hard to keep a constant temperature but absolutely fine for a quick shower.
Siamo stati accolti con cortesia in un posto inaspettatamente piacevole. La casa è in un parco dove si può apprezzare la campagna inglese. Si può arrivare alla stazione di Arlesey camminando venti minuti attraverso il parco, ma per muoversi è decisamente consigliato avere una macchina.
La casa è molto bella, purtroppo con qualche lavoro in corso e qualche manutenzione necessaria.
La disponibilità della padrona di casa ha compensato l'iniziale disorientamento causato da un po' di disordine. Ci siamo salutati con molto affetto perché dal punto di vista umano e della disponibilità non c'è niente da eccepire sulla padrona, anzi si tratta di una bellissima persona.
Tora y Helen hicieron fueron mas alla de lo esperaba para que me sienta comodo. Les daria mas de 5 estrellas en cada catergoria, pero Airbnb no me deja.
Excelente gente y excelente el lugar.
Si lo que busca es paz y tranquilidad por la zona, lo recomiendo.
Everything was perfect, from the lovely breakfast to the cosy accommodation. And they went the extra mile to help us out. I'd have no hesitation in booking again. Thank you for a very pleasant stay!
Very nice stay at Poppy Hill Cottages, thanks to Helen who took care of us as if we were family. Gorgeous breakfast, very pleasant bedroom! Remote location, therefore very quiet! Renovation works were in-progress by the time we stopped, Poppy Hill Cottages will even be more welcoming when they are finished. Thanks also to Tora who was always available by sms/phone when needed.
Many thanks again, wishing you all the best !
Many thanks Christian, so glad you enjoyed your stay. You are very welcome any time you are in the area.
We've also made progress on the yard and all now gone and back to its former glory! Thx for the feedback.
Helen was lovely, I arrived quite late and was greeted with the offer of a hot drink. I chatted to Helen and I was shown my room. I have to say the bed was very comfy and I had a fantastic nights sleep and really didn't want to get up the next morning. Breakfast was lovely, big portions and lots of choice. If ever I am in the area again I'll be looking to stay again. Thank you.
Tora and her mum were really lovely and super welcoming hosts! The cottage is in the lovely, quiet countryside and very near Champneys, which is a treat even to step into. When we arrived Tora very kindly offered to pick us up and we were on foot and it was raining, but the cottage really wasn't that far from the station and we enjoyed the stroll. We were also very, very kindly given a lift to the Lavender Farm the next day, which would have been difficult to get to on either foot or bus.
The lavender room, where myself and my 2 other housemates stayed was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was roomy and clean too, but the shower was a little on the weak side. Breakfast was plentiful, with beans, loads of toast, eggs, cereal, fruit, coffee and tea and really set us up for both days!
We came back to London relaxed and full of countryside air :)
The house is in a beautiful location. I had free upgrade to the larger room which is so bright with lots of windows overlooking the countryside. Very peaceful and the nearby lakes are stunning.
The host is very friendly and helpful and I had a nice relaxing stay while working in the area.
The room is very nice but the rest of the house needs a big tidy up and clean to get it back looking like it did in the pictures.
Place not so easy to find .... But it was worth . Tora made a reservation in the pub / restaurant of the village for us as per our request. Place very quiet and calm in the countryside . You can sleep very late and wake up for a very good breakfast prepared by Helen . They are both very kind and friendship and ready to assist you in all your requests . Will not hesitate to go again in this cottage in case of any other travel not to far from London . Thank you for everything.
Thanks Karim! You are welcome back anytime and we'll get the real coffee in for you x
Very nice place to stay in the countryside. Our room was very well represented and the house is set in a beautiful location. Great breakfast and friendly host. Definitely recommend.
I had the pleasure of hosting Tora and her family for their holidays .Tora and her family were very easy to communicate with and kept my home clean and neat. I highly recommend Tora as a guest! Angela
