    The cottage exceeded our expectations. Well furnished and equipped to a high standard. The landlady, Julie, couldn't have been more helpful and friendly and we would definitely recommend the cottage to others. Had a lovely holiday in the area.

    The cottage was in excellent condition, plenty of space internally and very adequate externally. The website said there was a washing machine, which there is not. Would benefit from having some more serving dishes and perhaps a bread bin; also would have been helpful to have some cleaning products (e.g. dishcloth, surface cleaner, bleach and a vacuum cleaner). However, overall we had a relaxing time and were very comfortable. It was very helpful that there were places where the dogs could be exercised. Easy access to shops in Market Harborough and main road that we needed to use; close also to Foxton Locks which unfortunately we did not have time to visit on this occasion.

    Lovely spacious cottage with excellent parking. Peaceful location. Perfect for a family, and very comfortable beds. Extra warmth from the wood burning stove if desired. Fox ton Locks within easy reach with walks on the tow path. Good food at the pub.
