I booked this cottage for myself and colleagues whilst we were working at the nearby Burghley Horse Trials and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the beautiful little country gem. The bedrooms were very sweet and super comfy. Kitchen and bathroom were well equipped and the entire place was absolutely neat and spotless. Not just the cottage itself but also the surroundings are beautiful: lovely views, beautifully kept gardens, horses...a truly fantastic country experience. Kathryn made us feel really welcome, and I can thoroughly recommend staying in her cottage.
