Outstanding environment, very comfortable cottage, very friendly owners.Mrs Gerda Kirkpatrick - 3rd June 2019
This was a lovely cottage where you felt more like a guest in someone’s house rather than a holiday let. For us the books, garden, fruit, birds and kitchen facilities were the things which made all the difference. Peter and Valerie were welcoming, friendly and helpful without being obtrusive. We have every intention of visiting this beautiful part of England again and would more than happy to return to Butters Cottage when we do. Mrs Stephanie Wales - 6th July 2018
Lovely welcoming owners, friendly and helpful. Mrs R King - 5th September 2017
If you like nature, birds and nice cottages, you have to spend your holidays in Butters Cottage. The owners are very nice and we had a warm welcome. Mr Thomas Fuchs - 7th August 2017
We really enjoyed our stay at Butters Cottage. It is rustic and has a special charm. The beds are extremely comfortable. The location is excellent. Our hosts were very welcoming.Mrs Mariele Lee - 4th June 2016
Butters Cottage is a charming cottage in an idyllic location.Ms Gillian Poole - 4th April 2016
Situated in deep high Weald woodland with a beautiful informal garden and with deer and birds at the doorstep. The cottage is very attractive with lots of shaded and sunny outdoor areas for eating and reading, and walks from the doorstep. The library of books was a real bonus. Our hosts provided a really warm welcome and the house is full of thoughtful touches.Mrs D from Cambridge - 29th May 2015
Thank you for a wonderful stay in Butters Cottage, the warm welcome, the wild life. We still think it often. We would surely like to visit again.Corthilde Volkers - 1st August 2012
The rural retreat didn't let us down again this year. [These guests became engaged in Butters Cottage, Easter 2008, spent part of their honeymoon there, Easter 2009, but had to cancel due to arrival of baby, Easter 2010].The Littlemores - 16th April 2011
Never had such helpful and thoughtful hosts.The Green family - 21st August 2010
The cottage was a present in itself and we enjoyed every minute staying here. We absolutely had no idea that it would be so well equipped [2003]. Our 6th year staying in Butters Cottage has been very satisfying again [2009]The Werrij family - 7th August 2010
It was very special staying in a cottage with so much history. The garden around the cottage were one big adventure for our children (4 and 2). They loved playing by the little stream in the field, running up the steps to the meadow, and playing with Tumble and Folly.The Jacobs family from the Netherlands - 15th August 2009
The silence and green surroundings are wonderful, especially when you come from a densely populated suburb near Brussels. The cottage is absolutely charming and well equipped. Another big hit was the bird feeders - one could sit for hours just watching them.The Germonprez family from Belgium - 18th July 2009
Vielen dank fur den schonen Aufenthalt in diesen niedlichen Haus. Das haus hat eine wundervolle atmosphare und es hat gut getan hier ent spannen zu konnen. (Many thanks for the lovely time we spent in this cosy cottage. It has a lovely relaxing atmosphere and we enjoyed our stay very much.)The Kuhl family - 4th July 2009
This cottage is really a jewel in a lovely location. Thanks to Valerie and Peter for the warm welcome; they are really kind hosts.The Hilbks from Germany - 29th December 2008
We have had a wonderful week in this delightful cottage. So much to do and not enough time to do it all.The Allens - 25th October 2008
Thank you for the best equipment I ever saw in a holiday cottage.The Hoffmans from Germany - 20th June 2008
This was our fourth stay in Butters Cottage. We are happy to say that it has been just as enjoyable as previous years.The Moat family - 1st January 1970
