Granary Cottage

Guestbook

The Ultimate Brain De-Tox! This was our second visit to the Straw Cottage at totally different times of the year and both occasions were absolutely brilliant. The total absence of traffic and general town noise was a total delight. The burbling of the stream and melodic chirping of the birds almost meditative. As last time the cottage was superbly well stocked with all your needs for a peaceful treat and the hosts fabulously friendly and very helpful. Margot's anti-rain dance also worked a treat! If you keep a watch mid morning and afternoon at the tree with the swing to the side then you might be lucky enough to spot the resident tree-creeper. Also keep the veranda table well stocked all day with peanuts and you will keep a pair of nuthatches very happy. Fabulous stay, many thanks.
