20th April 2019- 'We have had such a lovely stay at Blackbird. The location was perfect for us, we especially enjoyed the evening walks with the kids to see their favourite donkey Homer. The cottage was brilliant, it had everything we needed and the beds were so comfy. You can really see a lot of though has gone into every detail. We have booked again for Whitsun and can't wait to come back.'
6th November 2018- 'Just a few days away but we feel so much better for it. Have had lovely walks. As always the cottage was very clean, warm and welcoming when we arrived - can't fault Sweetcombe. Our second stay at this cottage but several holidays with Sweetcombe. We will be back soon.'
