From the Visitors’ Book in Lakeside Cottage.


A fabulous 2 weeks in the most well-equipped cottage rental we’ve ever stayed in; we loved every bit of our stay.

The cottage is just fabulous, spacious and welcoming, a true home from home – but with so much fantastic wildlife to enjoy.

We had an amazing time, and really appreciate your warm welcome, delicious home-made bread and amazing cottage, plus door-to-door access to spectacular walks, a real treat.

Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful cottage, we had a lovely memorable time. Hope to see you again.

Lovely cottage in a stunning location. Close to nature. Great walks, bluebells and wild garlic. Many thanks for the warm welcome and yummy bread.

Everything has been perfect, especially the Crow’s Nest on a sunny morning and the badgers at dusk. What a treat.  

What a wonderful place, equipped with everything we could possibly need. We feel relaxed and rested, and ready to face the world again!

Beautiful and peaceful setting, and yet so close to amenities.  Loved spotting the badgers and deer.

Booked the cottage to use as a base to visit various places, but could have spent all of our time within the cottage and surrounding area as the place is ideal.  Hosts very welcoming.

I marvel at how a couple who have created a paradise are prepared to share it so generously with strangers. I judge any stay by its shower, its kitchen and cleanliness;  Lakeside scores 100%.

A lovely visit – what a beautiful place. Thanks for all the detailed attention.

Tranquil cottage in a beautiful valley; just what we needed.

This cottage is one of the best we have ever stayed in;  it is warm and comfortable and everything works!

A fantastic location, fabulous hosts and 5-star accommodation.  Couldn’t ask for more.

We have had a wonderful time here! Thank you for your hospitality, scones, walnut loaf, and your beautiful cottage! Thanks for a beautiful location, amazing accommodation and reception from Carol & Peter. Stunning.

Just perfect! Great hospitality – not too much, not too little. We will miss the badgers on the front lawn. The very warm welcome could not be beaten, and the cleanliness cannot be improved!

Brilliant location for Glos/Herefordshire. Superb cottage, excellent hospitality from Peter and Carol. Took Peter’s advice and took the walk up the hill – near apoplexy resulted but worth it! Although spent 10 to 5 each day around about, fantastic to come back to the wonderful cottage each evening and just relax. Perfect break.

A great relaxing time! Views and walks superb. Hospitality very welcome. Thank you for the homemade bread and cake. Such a lovely gesture. Looking forward to coming back. Thank you, Carol & Peter PS: It was wonderful to see the badger.

What a wonderful place to stay; we stay S/C many times a year; never stayed in such a well equipped cottage; the peace and quiet is just idyllic, and the fishing in wonderful surroundings.

Beautiful setting. Enjoyed hot mulled wine on the Crow’s Nest after visiting the wonderful Daylesford Farm Shop. Photos on the website do not in any way do Lakeside Cottage justice.

Fantastic location and cottage beautifully finished; stunning to see the badgers, roe deer & foxes! Better than BBC Springwatch! We will be back!

We came away for a retreat, and found our ideal place!  A lovely welcome, thank you, Carol & Peter

Stunning location, peaceful place, cottage is lovely, amazingly well equipped and spotless. Looking forward to coming again.

Absolutely fantastic! Peaceful spot, great accommodation. Fantastic wildlife including roe deer and badgers.

5-star accommodation and 5-star hosts! One of the best places I have stayed.

Perfect cottage in the perfect setting. Saw all the wildlife, including fox, badgers and deer.  Nice to find a place that looks even better in the flesh than on the internet!
