Welcome meal on arrival was brilliant

By Richard on 20-Aug-2023

We loved our stay - the cottage is very well equipped, including all the essentials, and great garden furniture/sun shade and bbq. Lyn and Graham are brilliant hosts, attentive when necessary, but otherwise leaving you to make your own way, helping you with with a folder crammed with places to see and things to do including route maps . The Pool is fantastic, and the private space around the building makes for a very relaxing stay, and also with secure parking. The welcome meal that Lyn offers on arrival was brilliant. We all enjoyed our stay immensely, very happy to recommend to others.

A very relaxing week

By Katherine on 07-Jul-2023

We had a very relaxing week at Rose Cottage as a family of five. We loved the beautiful gardens and the swimming pool surrounded by fruit trees. The surrounding countryside is quiet, open and flat - good for bicycling with the kids. Lyn and Graham were very welcoming and we enjoyed Lyn’s cooking on the first evening very much. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

Wonderful Stay!

By Cheryl & Steve, Lymington on 24-Sep-2022

We had a wonderful stay in Rose Cottage for the Circuit des Remparts. Many thanks to Lyn & Graham for all their wonderful organisation & hospitality in making this a very special trip.
