    • “The property was spotlessly clean and well appointed, in beautiful countryside. There are lots of interesting places to visit within easy reach of the cottage.”

    Mr Hargreaves, Chester,, August 2015

    • “The cottage was well placed for several National Trust properties. There were plenty of walks in the area. The cottage was very peaceful, if you want a holiday away from it all, this is for you.”

    Miss Smith, Rochester, August 2015

    • “Meadow Lea is a lovely warm and cosy place to stay and ideal if you have children.”

    Mrs Reynolds, Felixstowe, October 2014

    • “The bungalow was lovely, I could live there full time. The garden area was great to sit in; peaceful, quiet and we saw quite a lot of wild life. The position it was located in which was great for seeing the surrounding areas. We were blessed with perfect weather which was a bonus.”

    Mrs Roberts, St. Helens, September 2014

    • “The bungalow was just about perfect for us (2 adults, plus 2 children with walking difficulties). It has a great layout, plus it feels so much bigger within than it looks from the outside. There was a lovely view from the front and a pleasant quiet garden at the back. A 10/10 for this lovely property - I would gladly return.”
