Sarah P says...
"Just returned from a 3 night stay at Poachers Pocket. Cannot praise this place enough. The booking experience and arrangements with Gemma was faultless. The cottage itself is amazing. Wonderful location. Thoughtful extras in the kitchen and bathroom. Lovely homemade bread, scones and jam. High quality linens. Marvellous boutique style holiday cottage. Will be returning"
