A Great Escape
A real home from home, that is why this was our second stay at Brimstone Cottage. As soon a s you enter the cottage you feel very much at "home". Great location and ideal for taking break with some peace and quiet. 5 Star communication from the hosts and we will be booking again in 2022.

Wonderful Stay
An absolutely wonderful long weekend with my wife - the cottage was brilliant and there was nothing it didn't have we needed. Owners were brilliant and always on hand to answer the odd question - I can't say any higher praise than we will both be back.

5/5 Excellent

Peace and Quiet in the country.
The property has everything you require for a stay either short or long, we all wished we could have stayed longer as it was so comfortable and peaceful. Great outside space to just sit and watch the local wild fowl on the lake which is close by. Thank you Carole and Colin for the opportunity to spend time in your brilliant cottage.
