The owners lived next door and were extremely welcoming and helpful - not only when we arrived but for anything else that we needed. The hot tub was a particular treat and even in the February cold and rain, we really enjoyed sitting in the hot tub as it was under cover. An amazing experience.

Ms M H,

Hosts were wonderful, very friendly, helpful and accommodating. My family loved this property, their stay and the surrounding area. It is very affordable and we will definitely stay again. Little touches like having the fire already made... one light and wow! The hot tub is incredible.... very cold getting to and from but well worth it! The kitchen was very well equipped. The special touches of scones jam and cream were incredibly welcomed. I fully recommend Lower Dean.

Miss L W,

There is nothing I can fault about this property it is excellent for all the above and more.

Mrs Claire A,

We had a really lovely week again having returned after enjoying our visit so much last year. Ashley and Tracey are such lovely hosts and are always very welcoming and ready to help with anything. Little touches such as welcome treats are really appreciated too. Hope we can return next year too.

Mrs Sally E,

Beautiful cottage located in a very peaceful rural village. It was presented beautifully and had all the facilities we required. A big bonus was were the lovely owners. We would definitely recommend and would like to return.
