We know how gorgeous our retreats are, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what previous guests say about Melynsy:

Idyllic location and fabulous property; great design and super comfortable. Kitchen and living room particularly spacious and airy, plus a cosy snug for quieter moments to hide away and read. Perfect, thank you.

A stunning and enchanting retreat that we instantly fell in love with. Homely, but decadent. A truly magical place to totally escape reality. Thank you.

Wonderful cottage, with absolutely everything you need for a super stay. Beautiful well established garden, and beautifully decorated house, with each room designed to impress. It’s actually more spectacular than the photos. Even robes provided. The kitchen is really super with everything you need to cook a banquet meal, should you want to. A lovely hot tub just outside the kitchen area, and a patio for sitting in the sun or eating outside as well. Nicest place I’ve stayed for many years.
