  • "Very well equipped and very clean but the mattress was awful."

    Cheap and really uncomfortable. We left a day early because I was in so much discomfort. I couldn't face a other night. It's a shame as we were looking for somewhere we could rent regularly while seeing family in the area

    We were surprised to hear that you found the mattress uncomfortable as many other guests have complimented us on the quality and comfort of these mattresses, and have even asked us where we bought them so they could purchase the same. We can assure you that these mattresses were not at all cheap, because it is very important to us that our guests enjoy a comfortable stay. Property Owner

  • "House Martins is the perfect holiday home."

    It is clean and tidy and has everything you could possibly want. It is also very well situated for exploring a wide area and has the added interest of a canal and locks nearby.

  • "A very clean and spacious property, with a friendly greeting on arrival by Jean (the owner)."

    We found the lounge furniture a bit low for us "oldies" to get out of but nevertheless really enjoyed our stay during what turned into a Heat Wave. A bit disappointed given the price that there was no Welcome Pack apart from left-over tea bags and coffee !

    Great location, easy access to Bath, Oxford, Stonehenge, New Forest, Dorset and Longleat. We received such a lovely welcome from the owner who showed us around the house. The house was immaculate. Extremely clean, everything looked great. The lounge has very comfy sofas. A well equipped kitchen with everything you could need. Three good sized bedrooms with very comfy beds and good quality bedding and towels. There really isnt anything you could add to improve this property other than a dishwasher! We had a great week away, the lovely weather was good too. I would highly recommend House Martins to anyone and we will certainly be recommending it to family and friends.

  • "A comfortable home and ideal location, which could not have been better for visiting our family."

    We would enjoy staying at House Martins again. There is a Care Home directly opposite but we were not disturbed by the activity there. The blackout curtains did not prevent the bright lights from the Care Home lighting the bedroom at night time. (The light shines up behind the curtain pole which stands away from the wall). A close fitting curtain track or the addition of roller blinds on the bay window, might be a solution??
