Beautiful, quite cottage with private garden. Loved the fire, cosey feel and super clean.

The pictures don’t do the cottage justice. It is such a lovely little space, with all basic amenities available. Mari was amazingly helpful before and during our visit. We absolutely loved having the fire lit and it is such a lovely area, with a good array of pubs and countryside. We shall be visiting again.

Mari and Rob were wonderful hosts - very warm, welcoming and informative. The house is lovely. It is very private, calm, and cosy - and so makes the perfect place for a weekend retreat. The surroundings are excellent as well, with innumerate pretty villages, atmospheric pubs and beautiful country walks to try within a stone's throw. I wholeheartedly recommend staying there.

We absolutely loved our stay, the cottage is truly amazing, it's very peaceful and relaxing. Mari and Rob have thought about absolutely everything to make a great stay. Also the breakfast hamper was a really nice thing. We can't wait to come back.

I was born and brought up in Edinburgh then moved to the United Arab Emirates with my husband Rob where we worked for a number of years in the subsea industry. We returned to Scotland to start a family and we now have five children and eight grandchildren between us.
Around 20 years ago Rob was a founder of a maritime salvage company which required us to move to West Sussex, where we have been ever since. I took over an events catering company and have run it now successfully for 12 years. I am still very much involved but also find time to enjoy pottery and gardening both which I absolutely love.
Rob is now retired and is an enthusiastic woodturning novice, climber and kayaker and we both very much enjoy travelling and outdoor activities.
