Shirley and Rob were really welcoming. The room and breakfasts were hearty and there was plenty to choose from . Shirley is an old school friend and she was happy to help me with anything I wanted. The bed was really comfortable and I loved the big shower. They are working on getting the place as eco friendly as possible and I applaud them for that. I would recommend staying here as It's quiet and easy to get to. My thanks to them both for a lovely stay.

Words cannot express how truly grateful I am to you for your amazing hospitality and genuine concern - a "home away from home" is how I will regard this place! BEST BUTTERNUT SOUP EVER ! Much love.

Again, thank you Rob and Shirley for a relaxed, most comfortable stay. Looks like Cadberry Cottage will be a ' home away from home' for me!

We were tired and desparate and asked for a place to stay. We got 2 angels to comfort us, guide us and solve our problem. One of the highlightsof 2009. May you be blessed in 2010

Shirley, among many accolades, I can say that at last someone has got it right! Clean, confortable, thoughtful touches and tastefully furnished. I will certainly recommend Fountains to anyone. Keep it up.
