    A lovely place to stay with everything you could want. My only criticism ( and its only small ) was the lack of anywhere to hang wet towels ( I know there is a drier in the courtyard but we didnt want to keep going out to it) and it was raining so couldnt use the outside washing line - the bathroom rad wasnt large enough. Other than that I would definitely recommend a stay here.

    Nice location, very rural. Nice and quiet. Support from Mark was excellent and unobtrusive. The settee could do with improvement, but otherwise the accommodation was very good. Even the tin opener worked which is a first in about 15 years of holiday cottage hires.

    This was my second visit to Saddlers Cottage and it was just as enjoyable as the first. Very clean and comfortable. The reason I have marked down the local amenities is because Saddlers Cottage is in a rural location and so it is difficult to be too critical on this point. That said, there is a Tesco extra which is about 10-15 minute drive away. The owners are very friendly and welcoming and always on hand but not intrusive should you need them. My personal opinion is that I would highly recommend Saddlers Cottage and it is my intention to book another stay sometime in the future.

    My partner, me and the dog had a perfect stay at saddlers cottage. Everything we could have needed was already there. Lovely view to wake up to and lots of walks close by we enjoyed. The local pub is also very nice and they give discount for anyone staying at saddlers cottage. We would definitely recommend this cottage and will definitely be back again.
