June 2019

We had a lovely week and all communications with Toad Hall were great. The cottage is well appointed and very comfortable with the exception of the road; it is very loud and the closeness to the traffic makes getting in and out with dogs and children rather harrowing.

May 2019

Absolutely loved the cottage and although we knew that dogs stayed there, there was an extremely strong smell of them in the sitting room, other than that it more than met our needs.

July 2018

Lovely week spent at The Nook, a lovely, comfortable and well equipped cottage.

July 2018

Would be better, if we could recycle more. We took paper and cardboard home, as it did not feel right to put it in to and fill sites. As no opportunity to recycle except glass at the local hotel.

June 2018

We had a wonderful holiday - The Nook exceeded our expectations and we hope to return. Thank you.

April 2018

Lovely cottage and once building works are completed I would highly recommend it

November 2017

We found The Nook to be an exceptionally comfortable and well equipped cottage with obvious touches of a family home about it, making it feel very welcoming. The log burner in the evenings made it very cosy. We were so happy with it that we have booked again!

October 2017

Beautiful cottage and excellent location

September 2017

Very much. The cottage is lovely and in a great location for exploring the area. The pub and hotel were excellent and very dog friendly. The area is beautiful. We will definitely recommend it to our friends.

May 2017

The only thing we noticed was that on our visit last year a bottle of wine was left to welcome us, apart from that the house was spotless and very homely which is why we rebooked.

We thank you for your comments which have been forward to the owner, and have included an urgent request that wine stocks are replenished! Glad that you enjoyed your stay.

May 2017

Our holiday was perfect!!!! The cottage was beautiful the only enhancement would be to fit blackout blinds in the bedrooms, as the light flooding in the morning made for early rising! We will be definitely going back to this cottage again. We have only stayed with ToadHall once before (Baytree cottage) and the only small things that they offered which we missed with The Nook was a welcome tray of scones, jam & cream and a little goodie bag of treats for our dog. Nice touches, obviously these didn't impact the enjoyment of our holiday this time but we were a bit disappointed that we didn't get it here as we were looking forward to them.

We are delighted that you enjoyed the Nook so much. Each owner provides their own choice of welcome for their guests, however the owner apologised that it was missed this time, but look forward to welcoming you next time.

- The Toad Hall Team

Delighted to add that the owner has now added blackout blinds to both rear facing bedrooms, and the master bedroom has thicker curtains (and no direct sunlight in the morning being north-facing) so this should now make for a relaxing holiday lie-in.

A lovely thatched cottage in the heart of the old village. Beautifully refurbished, well equipped and very clean. Parking difficult outside the cottage, but the owner has arranged for a permit to park at the nearby parish hall which is about a 3 minute walk. This worked well for us.

July 2016

Superb cottage - lovely location, gorgeous decor and well thought through with everything you could need. A delight to stay in.

September 2014

The Nook is a gorgeous cottage in a beautiful village. The information book requires more information. Where the nearest bottle bank is located (hotel car park), how to work the DVD machine (took us ages to work that out), Central heating instructions (at the moment it is set to 24hrs a day, we didn't want to mess with it and just turned it on and off when needed), instructions for rubbish disposal in general and the day the bin men arrive. Could do with a bit more cutlery. But in no way did any of this stop our enjoyment of this delightful cottage. Lovely linen on very comfortable bed. Lovely new towels, super garden, sofa etc etc. So nice we want to book again and again. And we will. Thank you.
