Our stay at Middle Leys cottage back in May was faultless. The cottage was lovely, the stabling and lady running that was fantastic and our dogs had a good time too Thank you, unfortunately the horse failed it’s first day of the ghs so spent the Sunday chilling in the field with his mate (who also failed too). Lovely cottage and would love to stay there again probably around ghs time if we do. L Rowland, May 2018
