The cottage was smaller than anticipated, settee was just big enough for 2 adults. The log fire was a pleasure to have at night and heated the room up within minutes. Was rather pricey for 4 nights stay with the booking agent fee.

We had a wonderful stay at Earl Barton Cottage and the dog loved the enclosed garden with its amazing views. We met several local people who were all friendly and helpful. Lovely walk into the village over the fields via the public footpath for a coffee at The Bridge. Very handy for visiting family in Bristol. We would love to stay again.

Overall we enjoyed our stay, however the property was a lot smaller than we'd expected from the photos and there's very little ventilation in the bedroom as the windows don't open. The wet room (and therefore towels etc.) was always damp as a result too. The sofa is also very small, even for two, but if you're planning to spend your time exploring Read morethe area and enjoying lots of walks then I'm sure you'll enjoy a quiet stay here. Hide

Fabulous little cottage, it was a great base for my husband and I with our two dogs. Everywhere we went was between 30min and and hour drive so pretty central for where we wanted to go. Would definitely recommend this cottage if your going to the cotswolds. The only minus for us was the bed was uncomfortable.

Lovely cottage, full of character, comfortable, clean as a whistle. Really helpful owners. The location is perfect for walkers (especially with dogs), with miles of footpaths right on the doorstep. Thoroughly recommend the circular walk at Old Sodbury, though don't be fooled by the "easy" tag - some sections are steep. Also the circular walk at WotRead moreton under Edge, though there's a high stile my dog couldn't cope with. Wonderful location for visiting pretty Cotswold towns, too. Great holiday. Hide

Whitstable is one of Kent’s most popular seaside towns, not only for its long shingle beaches, dotted with colourful huts and houses, but also for its annual Oyster Festival, when the town really comes alive. Here you can sample this renowned delicacy which has been collected in the area since Roman times and brings visitors from all over the globe to get a glimpse of the first catch of the season. Still a working harbour, you can sample a plethora of seafood from the stalls and restaurants as you watch the fishing boats return from sea, or pop up to the bohemian main street with its quirky colourful shops and galleries. Keep to the seaside theme and hire bikes to ride along the coast to Herne Bay just two miles away, or try the famous inland Crab and Winkle Way, which follows the old railway line between Whitstable and Canterbury and is packed with history and nostalgia. Relax with lazy days at the beach, building sandcastles and exploring hidden rock pools or take a long walk along the vast stretch of shingle beach. The area has lots of other beach walks, as well many country and woodland trails nearby, perfect for both you and the family dog! For a little culture, pay a visit to the town’s famous 18th century Castle and Gardens, Playhouse Theatre and Whitstable Museum and Gallery, all perfect for an afternoon or evening out. Only eight miles north of the cathedral city of Canterbury with its popular glass-fronted Marlowe Theatre, you are also just half an hour away from the up-and-coming seaside town of Margate and 45 minutes away from the port of Dover with its famous white cliffs. Slightly further afield, you will find the historic Cinque Ports towns of amongst others, Rye, Hastings and Tenterden where you will find a variety of spectacular monuments and beautiful castles to visit with all the family. Whitstable really is the perfect place for those who want to get back to how holidays used to be – full of fun, adventure and family.
