We had a wonderful time at Pollyanna. A truly relaxing getaway and our host Kirsten was very welcoming. The cottage was beautiful and it was the perfect retreat. Quiet, cosy time away from the hustle and bustle of normal life was really important to us so we are very thankful to have spent the time at Pollyanna.

Pollyanna is a gorgeous cottage that exceeded our expectations in every way. Kirsten, the owner, was very helpful and welcoming.

We have really enjoyed our stay in your beautiful cottage with its fabulous location. The cottage has everything needed for a comfortable and cosy stay. You really have thought of everything. We sipped wine under the stars in the fragrant garden, who says romance is dead after 31 years!?

We loved your cottage. It is beautifully furnished, so well equipped, comfortable and cosy. It was hard for us to leave. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful place.

Thank you very much for a wonderful stay at Pollyanna. We could not have timed it better. Everything was truly perfect, the house and the beautiful garden.

Thank you for letting us borrow your beautiful Pollyanna. She has far exceeded our expectations and given us a safe comfortable home to return to each day.

We wanted a secluded thatched cottage with lots of character. Pollyana was everything we hoped for and more.

We had the most wonderful stay at Pollyanna. When you book that special accommodation nearly one year in advance and you count down the weeks until your there, you don´t want to be disappointed... and we weren´t! It was everything and more! The house, the gardens, the weather - PERFECT.

We just wanted to thank you for providing such a lovely setting for our first mini family getaway! The cottage is beautifully quaint and you have kept it all very well. We have enjoyed your beautiful orchard, the books and games you left here and been on a couple of your recommended walks. Thank you for thinking of most things too; the kitchen is stocked well and your toiletries were lovely. Thank you for making our weekend so enjoyable!

We loved it and are thinking of re-booking in July. The garden and the facilities for children are a big selling point.

What a beautiful cottage, a real escape. We had a wonderful time here, the babies loved exploring and playing in the garden - we loved the peace and quiet after the babies had gone to sleep!! Thank you.

We and our guests had a great stay, thank you so much for having us. We all loved the cottage and gardens, as did our guests and their children in particular! Thanks also for the castle recommendation.

Fantastic weather, lovely cottage, breath taking scenery and we enjoyed the garden with its hidden wonders. Heaven on earth doesn´t exist but this spot comes close. Thank you.

We had a fantastic stay in this beautiful cottage. It has everything you could possibly need and more. We would love to come back, thank you for having us.

We came to stay in this beautiful fairytale cottage with our three lovely children for my 40th birthday. The cottage is so pretty, with comfy beds and a beautiful garden, it was perfect.

What a lovely peaceful and relaxing week. Loving the Aga and log burner in particular, although the garden toys were perfect for our 3 year old. The cosy comfort led to earlier nights than planned, but we left totally refreshed. Thank you for the loan of the idyllic retreat!

We had the most wonderful time at your lovely cottage. Thank you so much for sharing it with us and looking after us so well. Henrietta and Martha Rose, a big thanks to you both for sharing your toys with our girls, the trampoline being the highlight. Hope to see you again soon.

We were really impressed with the facilities at the cottage, it felt really homely. We received a warm welcome from Kirsten when we arrived.

Absolutely terrific place to spend our honeymoon. Full of little touches that made us feel at home. Thank you for a beautiful place to unwind after planning a wedding! Hope to come back again.

Thank you so much for making my 40th birthday so special. Your cottage is beautiful. We were made to feel very welcome. We loved the area especially Broadway! Hope to see you again soon

A beautiful cottage in a wonderful area. We did a fantastic walk from the door to Eckington and beyond 4 and a half hours. Hidcote is lovely. The apples and pears taste so much better off the tree! Thank you we are relaxed and re-energised. Thank you.

What a beautiful cottage! You have thought of everything we might need and we love your attention to details in everything. Thanks for all your help and guidance about where to go. We loved Hidcote Gardens, Broadway and our walk on the Malverns in particular. Your little guide books were so helpful, we’d have been lost without them, thanks

Thank you very much for letting us stay at your lovely cottage. We enjoyed it very much, had lots of fun, did nice tours around the Cotswolds. We’d loved to come back!

What a lovely stay we had! Thank you Darren & Kirsten for all your attentions. We will surely come back when the girls are a bit older so that they can enjoy Henrietta’s and Martha’s lovely dolls house. Wonderful parks around!
