  • "The hot water in the downstairs bathroom was not very hot."

  • "The property was excellent however just one very small gripe which did not however spoil our stay."

    The radiator, in the down stair bedroom en suite, next to the toilet got extremely hot when the heating was on as its position was very close. Not ideal if you have small children using this toilet. The main en suite upstairs the radiator didn't appear to work, there was a fire in the room but during the night it could get quite cold. Apart from those minor points the property was well positioned and very well equipped. Country side walks from the property made this an ideal place to stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay again or recommend it to others.

  • "Everything was great."

    Really lovely place to visit but there were a few things that annoyed people. 1. Downstairs shower was nearly always cold. 2. Considering its for 10 people there aren't really enough pans to cook for 10. 3. No fireguard so couldn't have the fire on with children around. 4. Both Dvd players in living room didn't work Only a minor annoyance and didn't spoil the weekend which everyone really enjoyed.

  • "The occasion was my 70th birthday celebration, with family coming for the weekend and friends for the remainder of the week."

    The house was spacious and comfortable, the master bedroom distinctly quirky. Lovely to be able to sit out at the front as well as the back to catch the sunshine. Musical friends enjoyed the electric grand piano. The setting was rural and peaceful. The Village itself was a delight with its church and Manor House, both with connections to the Gunpowder Plot, and also Lutyens-designed cottages and churchyard cross. The pleasant pub was within easy walking distance. We could walk across fields the two and a half miles to the canal and The Admiral Nelson pub there. Coton Manor gardens and National Trust Canons Ashby were reachable. Freestone House was a perfect place for our special gathering. 3 comments: there was only one family bathroom shared between three of the non-en suite double rooms. There was no lounge area with easy chair seating for 10 people - but the kitchen was fine. There is only a three-weekly recycling bin collection, so the bin was awash with bottles when we arrived: we took our empties away with us!

  • "A fantastic cottage that had everything that we required and more."

    Lovely homely touches with the furnishings and quotes. The children loved the rocking horse and library corner. We would love to stay here again.

  • "The house looked tremendous in your listing but once we were there we found it so impressive it exceeded all our expectations."

    The kitchen with the ever warm aga was the hub of the house and we all congregated there to eat and chat. It was the ideal venue for my birthday. We found that Daventry was ideal for food shopping including Waitrose, Tesco etc. The Old Coach House at the end of the road served very nice meals and so did the George at Kilsby. We are interested in the history of Ashby St Ledgers so it was good that the church was open showing the full history of the Catesby family and their relationship to the gunpowder plot.
