“Spotlessly clean in a great location”
Reviewed 5 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed in Squirrels Drey for a long weekend with our 2 teenage children and our new dog Bentley. Its a really lovely accommodation, very clean, well equipped with gorgeous views. The only small criticism for me personally is that the kitchen area was a bit tight on space if you did want to cook a meal, we ate in 2 nights and I did struggle a bit. It was a real treat having the dishwasher and that came in very handy and the kitchen area generally was of a high standard and well equipped with plenty of crockery and cutlery. The outside courtyard from the main bedroom on the ground floor is a lovely spot and got the sun in the morning, I imagine in Summer months this would be a great place to enjoy alfresco eating. I would definately return and would recommend to family and friends.

“when can I come back?!”
Reviewed 8 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Brilliant.
Stayed with my partner and two dogs and couldn't have felt more accommodated. Bonios on arrival, every little touch you could think of around the house and friendly, super helpful hosts at your beckoned call. Beautiful setting and plenty of local info available.
Everything was spotlessly clean and so nicely looked after and thought about. Made it so easy to relax.
Will definitely be back!

“Beautiful cottage with helpful owners and a lovely homely feel”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed her as a break from university. Absolutely loved the cottage, immaculately clean and beautiful. Owners were very helpful and found us the BBQ for one night, as well as leaving us with an information pack for the surrounding area.

Set on a lovely farm, with beautiful views from the cottage. We would 100% stay again and recommend! Thank you so much!

“Excellent cottage”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We just spent 5 days at Squirrels Drey. The cottage has been converted to a very high modern specification and has lots of great facilities (espresso machine, ....). The games room and outside play area are great and our two children (6 and 8) loved it. They also loved having their own lounge on the third floor. The owners were also great, being very helpful but not intrusive.

“Very Good”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Stayed here for three days in late July. Excellent quality accommodation and even a freshly baked loaf on arrival! Beware, there are no shops within easy reach so take what you need before you get there. Only slight criticism was the number of flies in the building, but it was mid summer during a hot spell and a can of fly spray could be found under the sink!!

Will come back for sure.
