“beautiful cottage with everything you need for a comfortable stay”
Reviewed 7 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

the shire cottage is an ideal holiday home for families, my 3 children loved the play room full of toys and enjoyed staying in the kids bedroom, cereal jam portions tea and coffee are supplied and a collection of shower gels in the bathroom, ideal if you don't have much space to store toiletries.
Sainsburys is just around the corner along with different stores - poundland, entertainer, various takeaways etc..
we all enjoyed staying here and have already recommended the house to family and friends

This was the second time we stayed at Shire Cottage as we moved to the US and needed a base when we were visiting family in the UK and a house works much better than a hotel with young children. The house is really well set up for families and is clean and really well appointed.

“Shire Cottage is a home from home, perfect for a getaway”
Reviewed 11 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Shire Cottage is delightful. Spacious, comfortable and central to all the local amenities, the facilities inside the cottage for all of us - grandparents, children and grandchild - were great. We felt at home and very relaxed from the moment we turned the key in the door. We've all had a brilliant week and would definitely like to return early next year. Thanks Olga.

The Shire Cottage is truly lovely & exceeded our expectations. It is very cozy & has everything you (& your kids) need. Olga clearly put a lot of thought & love into it. Hope to return for a much longer stay!
