Guestbook

“OUR FAVOURITE PLACE TO STAY!” This was our second stay (and, hopefully, not the last by a long way) at Straw Cottage and we loved it just as much this Spring as last Summer. It is the best place I've ever found to give ourselves a much needed break from the pressures of modern life, yet it is still comfortable, cosy and just lovely. We kept nice and warm on the squashy sofas around the log burning stove in the evenings and played many family board games. During the day, we made outdoor fires in the fire pit, the kids and the dog played in the stream and the woods and rode their bikes, while the adults relaxed on the porch with books, magazines and guitar playing. And we all love the tree swing! Thank you to the lovely hosts, Margot and Anthony, for providing such a wonderful holiday experience.
