Family celebration

By HJ on 27-Sep-2023

We had a wonderful family weekend at Mews Hill and Criddlestyle Cottage. The houses are well equipped and comfortable with plenty of space for all of us, including a small child and 3 dogs. It was a delight to be able to walk out into the forest, while being conveniently close to shops and takeaway restaurants

Criddlestyle Cottage was perfect for family

By Trevor Strugnell on 31-Aug-2023

Criddlestyle Cottage was perfect for our family visit of 6 adults and 4 children under the age of 10. We appreciated the space for parking our cars and the trampoline & jungle gym in the garden.The barbecue was well used and there was space to sit in the garden. The walk down to the river is excellent. We enjoyed the fact that although everything was clean and tidy it was not so immaculate that we had to worry about living in it and enjoying it with the kids
