  • "Wow what can I say!"

    This house and the owner are amazing!! It was absolutely immaculate and really surpassed our expectations. The owner really went above and beyond for us, from the initial contact right through to actually meeting them at the house and after we left. We had everything we needed (and more) from towels to milk,bread,fresh fruit, tea and coffee etc....really far more than we would have expected. The location was perfect, shop and food places right next door and only took 10mins for us to get to our punting station. If you are thinking about booking don't delay, I would 100% recommend this lovely house. We are already talking about coming back next year

  • "I have already informed the owner of the horrendous stay that we had."

    Massive road works taking over the whole road and huge vehicles with reverse beeb alarms working till 4am banging and thumping road rollers that literally made the house shake. Ownercand Sykes should have told us that this huge undertaking was underway. Very minor issues too, the bins were all over flowing and had not been emptied for sometime, fruit left in fruit bowl was rotten, a number of lamp light bulbs were missing , very few appliance manuals. Do not trust this owner or this firm

    Thank you for your feedback. Firstly, we are sorry to hear that you found the roadworks to be disruptive. Roadworks can take place occasionally and have been over the past few years, however neither we nor Sykes were aware that there would be any roadworks taking place during your stay. Retrospectively, we have discovered that the work should have finished by 12am, so it is truly unfortunate that this happened to you. We can confirm that the bins were not overflowing, however we would like to reassure you that any other minor issues you have mentioned have been taken on board, and any areas of concern will be rectified fully for any future guests. Thank you again for your comments. Property Owner

  • "We couldn't have asked for a better location for our stay."

    The facilities exactly matched what we needed, and Heather was so helpful and friendly! We had gathered as an extended family for my daughter's wedding at Magdalene College, and it made a busy weekend feel much more luxurious. The breakfast rolls in the cafe opposite were amazing, too!

    Thank you for your kind review, we are so pleased that you enjoyed the location and everything that the property had to offer. Property Owner

    The house is in a great central location and is very spacious. Each room is decorated with high quality furnishings and feel like home from home. The kitchen is big and spacious which accommodated our family really well. We would definitely stay here again.
