Matchbox cottage is a lovely well presented cottage. We had a very enjoyable week staying there. The back garden is a sun trap and very peaceful.

“Lovely cottage, great location”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Loved staying here. Walked down the hill to the French cafe/restaurant most days for a great coffee and fresh croissants straight out of the oven. Warm sunny back garden, good spot for village walks down narrow lanes. Easy to park nearby. Good access to many sightseeing places nearby. Happy to recommend to others, definitely.

“Meeting Friends”
Reviewed 23 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Good for everyone including the dog. Exactly, where we wanted to be, great location for Hilda and me and Dolly. Need to oil the hinges and mend the window frames, small things but attention to detail is important, dripping tap in bathroom.
