  • "Lovely place very well equipped."

    Found the road atlas very useful as the map we brought was quite difficult to read. Could future guests use a kitchen waste bin or put veg peelings in the composter? (Just keen to help) . Also it was Really helpful to have email contact with the owner when we needed to. Overall we had a fabulous time.

    The house itself is beautiful inside and out. Plenty of information about the local area and the house. Set in a secluded rural lane but close enough to plenty of towns with shopping centres, restaurants and attractions. We couldn't have been happier with the holiday, will definitely have to visit again in the future!

    On hindsight it was just to far out . A lot of brochures in house but think a book where all visitors could recommend and give tips where is good to eat etc. We had trouble with the alarm for a few days blipping every few minutes tryed to sort it out with the help of the owners but had to get a professional in to sort it. There was a few goodies left for us which was lovely .
