Furlong cottage has everything we need for a family holiday, the beds were so comfy and we loved the huge open plan kitchen and lounge, will be back soon! Lisa and Jamie Feb 2019
The ‘cottage’ (understatement!) is delightful and I was really impressed with the design and care that has gone into creating a fantastic family room and generous sleeping spaces. The views and walks nearby were very much enjoyed too with the added bonus of Raffles’ company.
The fact that we could bring our horse on holiday with us and stay in such a fantastic cottage is the reason that we can't stop talking about our holiday with you. We had so much space in Furlong cottage and I loved all the little touches. The Rondel family December 2018
We really enjoyed our stay in Furlong cottage, it is so spacious and we loved relaxing by the fire place after a dip in the hot tub! Thanks Kathy and Chris, we will see you again soon…
