What our guests say
  • Comfortable and cosy. Very well equipped from mosquito repellant, candles and matches, tea and coffee, biscuits, hand picked wild flowers and lavender sprigs. The little touches make the difference, we felt very welcome.

  • The welcome sign on the door with your name on it so personal, the layout of the room, the quality of the linen outstanding, location of the property, so peaceful.

  • Such a peaceful, beautiful setting. The Sommer Son Cottage was outstanding — clean, creatively decorated, personal touches, very welcoming. Will definitely recommend this (already have) to anyone staying in the Midlands area!

  • This was our second stay at Jayne’s property and we were looking to come back. We stayed only one night, but as before, we had a fantastic experience, it is a very peaceful place with beautiful personal touches, great beds. We can’t wait to enjoy longer holidays there. Jayne was really helpful and friendly, which only enhanced our short stay.
