The property was situated in a lovely spot with beautiful views from the back of the house. The house itself was comfortable and large. It was well equipped and tastefully decorated and furnished. In fact we all agreed we would love to live in it ourselves! We would certainly recommend this property to anyone.

Mr Malone, Wirral, August 2013

A beautiful area - very good location. We found the house to be very spacious and clean. We would not hesitate to rent it again.

Mrs Fitzsimons, Stockport, May 2013

The house was above expectations and when I spoke to the owner on the phone he was very helpful with information about the area.

Mr Seppings, London, April 2013

Accommodation was fantastic and location was spot on. It is the nicest property I've stayed in on a short break. Owner was really helpful on the phone when confirming key collection.
