This was our second time staying at Peacock Cottage and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The cottage is comfortable and spotlessly clean. Rachel was both thoughtful and helpful. Kirby Hall is a wonderful setting and I hope we can visit again soon.
A fabulous stay. We consider Peacock Cottage our 'retreat' . Stunning surroundings, loads of lovely, local places to visit. But best of all was just staying in these lovely surroundings where every window features a view.
A lovely cottage in a very peaceful location.. Rachel the housekeeper was most helpful and friendly and we very much enjoyed the goodies in the welcome hamper. The cottage was spotlessly clean and well equipped.. Beryl in the Visitor’s Centre was also very welcoming and helpful. The peacocks kept us company too!
Wonderful cottage, friendly wildlife (peacocks), lovely location. We had a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable stay. The welcome hamper was exceptional and all the staff at the shop/ reception were very warm and welcoming.
