“Wonderful Host made our trip magic”

Looked after brilliantly in safe and beautiful surroundings. Very good advice on trips from the owner who lives next door. Maid service every day kept us and the cottage spotless. Anything we needed provided instantly. So much to see and do within minutes of this cottage

“Exceeded our expectations”
Reviewed 2 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

I can only echo what the reviews have already said. I must add how much we appreciated the free use of the swimming pool at Erinvale spa. We never encountered anyone else there-our own private pool in fact and only a few minutes from the cottage. Thank you Jen, Charlie, Melody and Abbey and we will be back next year!

“wonderful place!”
Reviewed 27 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We spent 3 nights at Alfie's cottage and had a lovely time there. The owners Jen and Charles and the housekeeper Melody were all so helpful and so welcoming. There are lots of thoughtful extras which make it a really lovely place to spend a few days. We will definitely go there again.

“Loved Alfie's cottage-it was home away from home”
Reviewed 5 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The hosts Jen and Charles made us feel very welcome. A cute and charming cottage,very comfortable with lots of little extras that we didn't expect-especially the bottle of wine in the fridge and cold drinks on arrival and the fresh flowers from the rose garden which were regularly updated. It is in a beautiful, quiet and safe area and would definitely stay here again.
