What our guests say..

The Carthovel was just what we needed for our base to visit our family and friends in Leicestershire and Warwickshire. We felt relaxed as soon as we drove through the gates through the wheat fields to our cottage which was tastefully decorated and equipped with everything we required for our stay. Jean and David, the owners of the farm live nearby and were always available to answer our requests. Loved our stay and would definitely recommend it.

Jean is a friendly, thoughtful and responsive host. The cottage was beautifully kept and equipped with all that we needed during our 5 night stay. We enjoyed local walks throughout the day and evening. A lovely place and surroundings for those who want to get away. We will be visiting again for sure. Thank you Jean x.
