Mr Killey, Altrincham, December 2013

Stayed for family gathering for the Christmas and our week was full of laughter and happiness. On arrival we had the instant Christmas feeling as it was so nicely decorated. The cottage is such a lovely place to stay, so clean and comfortable, deserves a higher star rating. Thank you so much for the card, wine and chocolates and for our extra special Christmas, one we'll never forget!!
