A small selection of our fabulous reviews!

GORGEOUS! A beautiful home, real attention to detail & had everything we needed for a lovely home away from home feel! The views were gorgeous & we loved every minute, would 100% recommend and come back! Thank you x

The cottage exceeded my expectations, it was exactly what I was hoping for when I booked it. The scenery and views are amazing and the cottage is decorated to a very high standard. It rained for most of our stay but that didn’t matter, it was just such a lovely place to be. Owner’s were lovely, was nice to know they were there if we needed anything but weren’t intrusive. I was worried with COVID about cleanliness etc. but I had nothing to worry about it. Would definitely like to stay again.

Nothing negative, we were really happy with everything. Can’t fault it.

Craven Cottage is an absolutely idyllic retreat – it was immaculately clean and stylish with beautiful views. We loved relaxing here and would definitely come back again. It was also a really good base to explore the amazing surroundings.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The ladies were very lovely. The cottage had everything you need, even providing prosecco in the fridge on arrival and treats and bowls for our dog. The cottage is decorated beautifully and everything was immaculate. We can’t wait to return!
There was absolutely nothing we didn’t like!

The cottage is beautiful and very stylish. It’s in a very scenic location and the place was very clean. The hosts were communicative and very helpful. The local town of Uppermill was very nice with good restaurants. We would definitely recommend and stay here again.

This is a wonderful holiday cottage. The hosts are very considerate and very helpful with local tips and recommendations. The cottage was absolutely spotless on arrival, and the facilities are thoughtful and high-spec. We travelled with our two dogs who found the place very comfortable and with extra touches for them such as dog bowls, spare poop bags and towels to dry their feet. We would thoroughly recommend this cottage and thanks to Charlotte, Julia and Chris.
