Amazing experience, I feel totally chilled out and relaxed.
Mr Parker, Cheshire
,The cottage was in a lovely rural and remote setting, just what we wanted. When we arrived, we were greeted by the cleaner, she was very welcoming and friendly. It was very homely and very well stocked with crockery etc. It supplied everything we needed, even down to a good selection of board games, books and details of local walks and pubs. It was good that the owner had a supply of coal and wood for the fire and trusted people to be honest and pay for what was used. We would definitely like to return.
Miss Wears, Tyne and Wear
,Wray Green is well positioned for walks from the doorstep and has stunning views. The property is cosy and welcoming with a large coal fire in the lounge and log burner in the Kitchen/Dining area. We were fortunate that it snowed during our stay so a combination of glowing fires and snow outside made it very appealing.
,The owners were particularly welcoming and helpful. We immediately felt right at home in the house which was very comfortably furnished in a charming traditional style. The location was splendid, with magnificent views and great walking all around. We enjoyed the 1000 piece jigsaws (all 3 completed) and the children loved the board games that were provided. No one missed watching TV!
Mr & Mrs Forrester, Derbyshire
,So much thought and care had been put into making this special cottage comfortable and well equipped. The location is absolutely stunning and it was lovely to spend a week here. The access road was very good and not a problem at all. The owners were very kind and welcoming, but not at all intrusive. This all ensured we had a lovely memorable holiday.
Mrs Brook, Aberdeenshire
,The cottage was beautiful and in such a lovely setting. The owners are very helpful and care about the cottage. There are several lovely dining pubs nearby - all of which are very good. I would certainly go back to this cottage.
,17th Century cottage with bags of character. We all LOVED it. Lots of walks available. Chris gave me loads of information about the cottage and the area before we left home and even phoned me again when I got home after the holiday to make sure everything was ok. What a conscientious owner. Very thoughtful! We LOVED the cottage and will certainly consider returning there another time.
Mrs Turner, Essex
,Absolutely loved Wray Green - the most stunning views (and sheep!) all around, loads of great walks and the house itself had so much character, interest and warmth. The owners were also very helpful and friendly. All perfect.
Mr Keppie, Gloucestershire
,This was our second time at Wray Green. We like how remote the property is. It is very well equipped with everything you are likely to need. It is a very cosy and homely property, just what is needed for a relaxing holiday.
Miss Wears, Tyne and Wear
,This was our second and eagerly anticipated return to Wray Green having stayed 2 years ago. We planned a purely relaxing and de-stressing week with another couple and the almost constant rain and gale force winds conspired with us. We enjoyed sitting by a roaring log fires, eating, drinking and reading one of the many books left to entertain guests in the warm and characterful 17th century farm house. The views are stunning on a clear day, the quiet and fresh air intoxicating and the sheep peering in the living room window entertaining. We jokingly hoped to be snowed in so that we didn't have to leave and woke up on the final day with a scene to grace the loveliest Christmas card. The owner was very prompt and helpful in getting the track de-iced and much as we were sad to leave we will definitely be booking to come back again very soon.
,Absolutely perfect getaway weekend with a group of friends. The cottage well and truly felt like home. It had everything we needed, exactly as stated in the description. Overall, a beautiful cottage.
Miss Knapton, South yorkshire
,Wray Green is a fantastic rural retreat. We were in need of some peace and quiet and that's exactly what we got. There were some amazing views and walks right on the doorstep. The open fire was fantastic. We are booking again for later in the year and have recommended the cottage friends.
,A wonderful historic cottage in a stunning location, with amazing views from every window. We immediately felt at home and soon settled in with cosy roaring fires. The sheep and lambs just outside made our holiday. Everything we could possibly need was provided and the owners were friendly and helpful.
Mrs Legg, South Yorkshire
,The cottage was beautiful, it was comfortable and well equipped, cosy and welcoming. The views were to die for and we will definitely be booking again.
