Previous visitors' comments about Lake View:
We visit National Trust properties throughout the U.K and as such we book our accommodation usually through you. We were able to see all the N/Trust properties in Worcestershire and surrounding counties that was possible, so we were well pleased with everything about our holiday. Another major factor that helped to make our holiday very good was the lovely weather we had that week.
Mrs Wainwright, Wadebridge, September 2011
The owners were perfect hosts. The cottage was fairly remote but this was part of the charm. A very chilled out holiday, we would go back.
