“Fantastic accommodation in beautiful surroundings. Great communication with the owner. Would definitely recommend.”
“We have stayed here on several occasions , it is always excellent.
Highly recommend the accommodation and it’s lovely location “
“We arrived in a large group, 3 families all with children. We were greeted by Ralph and Evelyn and were left to explore our cottages. The cottages are all close together which is perfect for a large group but still needing their own space. The grounds and views are amazing with lots of wildlife visible from the windows or in the gardens. The children enjoyed the outside space. The location is close to lots of places to visit and we could have stayed another week in order to see everything!”
“One of the cottages has a large patio and Evelyn and Ralph provided a BBQ (and moved it to the patio) for us to use. Nothing was too much trouble. I have recommended Sandford Country Cottages to friends and family and we will definitely be back to stay again”.
“Second stay as an annual get together with another 5 couples, 6 people shared Giddy Limit and 6 downstairs in Lady Bluebell. We all got together in Lady Bluebell and there was sufficient space and seating to accommodate. There is so much attention to detail with every utensil and all the crockery we needed to cook and serve meals for us all. “
“We found Evelyn and Ralph to be welcoming and helpful, everything was immaculate………just perfect. We will be back for sure.”
“What a stunning location and absolutely gorgeous accommodation. The apartment was very well equipped and had everything you need. The welcome pack was ideal. The hosts were so friendly and on hand and clearly put their heart and soul into their business. Hoping to return in the near future”
