The house was simply stunning, so well appointed.

Mr Donaldson, Milton Keynes, March 2014

The house is absolutely beautiful and the best equipped holiday home we've ever seen! The location is stunning with far reaching views across the Wye and a lovely garden. We were a large family with young children and the house catered for everyone - a great games room to keep the kids occupied and loads of space for the family to spend time together. We would definitely book this house again.

Mrs Sumner, Reading, March 2014

A beautiful house in a great location. We were all wowed by the view. Very impressed by how well equipped the accommodation was. We started planning a return visit almost immediately on arrival!

Miss Beresford, Telford, March 2014

Beautiful property, lovely linen, duvets and towels. Great for the dog. Fabulous real fires and lots of space for all of us. We hope to visit again. It was very peaceful - no problem at all with road noise.

Mrs Kendall, Glossop, February 2014
