Brackenbury Cottage

Bob and Liz Scott. Salisbury, Wilts.
" was really super - comfortable, warm and extremely well found. We didn't need anything, even for cooking our Christmas dinner...and a real bonus having the boiler room to dry everything after getting soaked everyday. Even the dogs appreciated the warmth and radiator above their bed!”
Peter Coleman. Chiddingfold, Surrey.
"Just a line to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at your lovely cottage in Beddgelert. All are agreed that it was the best cottage we have rented so far and it is unlikely we will find another as good."

York, Axminster, Devon.              
"My sister and I enjoyed so very much our holiday in your charming cottage. We felt very much at home in such comfortable surroundings - simply everything was so carefully thought of to the last detail. The conservatory was an added bonus to breakfast each morning and the whole countryside around was breathtaking - and helpful neighbours, too."....... "We've felt very relaxed in this beautiful cottage amongst wonderful scenery."
The Bourdeaudhui family. Markedaal, Belgium.
"A cosy cottage + Nice neighbours + bright weather + hospitable people + marvellous scenery = a perfect holiday!"
Mrs. Josephine Evans. Lower Swell, Glos.
"Lovely cottage; the books are a serious distraction especially to my husband! I had treated him to a new one for our holiday little realising how unnecessary it was."

Bursey, Edgbaston.
"We had a really wonderful holiday in Beddgelert yet again. The weather was good and everything worked well. We have now been coming for eleven years and it is certainly a magical place, which we enjoy enormously. We would like to book our usual week again next year."
