  • "The kitchen was very well equipped with ample crockery and cutlery and the utility room great for storing bags / dog food / etc - great to have a washing machine."

    The house was easy to keep warm and cosy and the dining table big enough for 6 of us. The only extra I would have liked was some hooks near bathroom radiators to dry towels. We had a kind welcome from Chris and texts to check we were ok with everything - we felt well looked after.

    Excellent communication with the owner, who made us feel very welcome. Situated in a lovely quiet village with the local pub (Fox and Hounds) on the doorstep. Great food and very friendly staff. The house is in excellent order, with nice, comfortable furniture and quality bedding/towels. A welcome pack ( fresh bread, butter, milk, orange juice, eggs, tea and various coffees had been left and greatly appreciated. Everything you need for a relaxing stay. Highly recommended and we hope to return.

  • "Really great house with amble facilities."

    Cooking equipment and serving stuff was amazing, normally even though houses can accommodate the quantity of people they don’t have the stuff you need, definitely not the case. Only thing we found was hot water for showers was a problem, would start scolding hot and then go cold very quickly. Also the en-suite shower was very weak, a bit of a struggle to wash hair. But otherwise the property was wonderful, really well maintained, wish we had needed to stay longer. Host, Chris, also excellent! Very quick to respond

The Fox and Hounds across the road is not recommended (food average, staff disinterested). We wanted to try The Six Bells but they were closed Bank Holiday Monday and not serving food all week, which was disappointing, as the pub and garden looked very appealing. We visited towns and villages further afield and found more nice walks,scenery, good pubs and food etc. Chris Lilley (the owner of Totts House) was very friendly and helpful and made our stay very enjoyable. The accommodation is spacious, comfortable and the kitchen/diner is well kitted out. The garden is pleasant and secluded. The only significant issues we had was a low flow/cold shower in the ensuite which Chris dealt with promptly, replacing the shower with a higher spec model and the adults had problems sleeping owing to being too hot - we discovered on departure that the duvets were winter rated 10.5 tog. Chris promised to address this. Overall the accommodation was excellent and recommended for a quiet relaxing break. Roger Metcalfe
