What our customers say about Boghead Cottage

A West -

A lovely, lovely cottage - clean and fresh and decorated to a high standard. The pond and surrounding woodland was idyllic and perfect for our German Shepherd dog to trot round in safety!

T Taylor -

Absolutley loved our holiday, the cottage was amazing and there was so much to do so close by even at the time of year that we visited. The extra special touch of providing wine and chocolates was very nice too!

Ian Williams -

The property and its location is amazing so much to do in and around the area. We loved it so much that we have been considering moving to live in the area, sadly work commitments restrict this so we would like to to stay here again. It would of been nice to meet the owners of the property to say thank you. Best holiday ever.
