"Very happy with this beautiful home in its fantastic location. The wildlife in the gardens was a real plus. We saw muntjac, hares, rabbits and the bird life included a family of marsh harriers. Every evening the godwits would fly overhead and the geese are lovely to listen to. The cottage is excellent with the best bed that I've ever slept in in a holiday home. It is remote and peaceful."

"If you want peace and tranquility far from the madding crowd, then look no further than High Broome. We have just spent the most wonderful 12 days over Xmas/NY with family. The kitchen is very well equipped, and everything was utilised during our stay! It is very warm, cosy and comfortable, with lovely paintings of the local area on the walls, plus a history of the bungalow for us to enjoy. The garden has lovely grass walkways mown amongst the broome. We even had one breakfast al fresco! As keen walkers and cyclists it is a perfect place to pursue our dreams. The views from the house are superb and wildlife is abundant. We hope to return!"
