    “We've just arrived home from a week in the wonderful Carley's Bridge.”

    Where do I start? The house is exquisite and spotlessly clean. Beautiful period features combine with gorgeous mid century pieces. They work perfectly together. Loads of nooks and crannies to read the vast range of books in the library, play a game and listen to some music. The house is filled with lots of modern features that make the stay so easy. Google Home, a Quooker tap, Nespresso machine. There were some lovely touches on arrival. Delicious brownies, home baked bread, milk and a bottle ...

Google Home, a Quooker tap, Nespresso machine. There were some lovely touches on arrival. Delicious brownies, home baked bread, milk and a bottle of wine. The children loved the tennis court, fishing in the river, and going up the back field to watch the sunsets. Incredible. Lots of wildlife and friendly neighours too! Beaches are only 30 minutes away. I would love to keep this a secret for myself but I can't! We will definitely be back.
