"What a great week myself close family and 3 dogs have just had at Nethway farm! Outstanding accommodation, the facilities were spot on and the heated swimming pool was the icing on the cake. A true little taste of heaven. Every detail from the cottage, games room, the walk to the lake, location ....I could go on and on! The owners always greeted us with a smile and the dogs loved the stay also." V Derrick
"Beautiful place which we will return to many, many times. Having 2 dogs and 2 children under 6 in tow can mean we’re packing the house AND the kitchen sink when we go away; but not for hols at Nethway! Lizzie & Nathan have thought of everything – our family holidays here are a joy." K Wright
