A nice tidy cottage with everything you need for a short stay, the bed was comfortable with extra bedding as we needed it. The local village pub was handy for food and there was good walks to enjoy in the area.

“Great Cottage, Great Service.”
Reviewed 24 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Stayed here on a short golf break. There are plenty of courses round about and a driving range down the road for rainy days. Difficult to find fault with the cottage itself. The moment you walk in you can see that a lot of time and thought has gone into making sure everything is in place for a comfortable, relaxing break. Harry is the perfect host. Attentive and there when you need him with a wealth of local information he also manages to ensure you get all the time and space you need to get on with enjoying yourself. The locals we met in the pub were friendly and justifiably proud of their village.

“A wonderful quiet spot with every-thing we needed for a few nights away.”
Reviewed 9 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

A great little cottage equipped with just about every-thing you would need away from home and if it wasn't there Harry was very accommodating finding us what we needed. It's on our list to return but I'm not sure when!

“a charming cottage with basic facilities”

We have spent 8 lovely days here and have found the cottage Candida Casa although basic very clean and comfortable. Our hosts Harry and Marlene were outstanding nothing was too much trouble for them.
If you are looking for a peaceful and restful stay which is not too far from the main towns this accommodation should be considered.
Thank you Harry and Marlene for making our stay pleasant and memorable
