“What can we say about Waterlily Cottage that hasn’t already been said?! Extremely comfortable, very appropriately decorated, and in a well serviced village. We couldn’t have been happier with our week. Do try the food in The Hawkins Arms, and the Indian is pretty good too. Claire was very helpful both before and after we arrived, so many thanks!”

“This little cottage really is perfect. This is our 5th stay which says it all really! We.ve had a wonderful week and the weather has been kind…most of the time! Thanks Claire & Dan – you were very attentive and we really appreciated you being at the end of a text message. We will almost certainly be staying here again”

“Third time round and we still love Probus. We are still finding new favourite places – even within the Roseland so we will have to come again to keep on discovering. The location of Waterlily is paramount to the deliverance of opinion, not to mention its attractive comfort. P.S really happy with the seamless transition of ownership and management of Waterlily, We hope it continues as we want to come again.”
