  • "A lovely little bungalow in a picturesque setting."

    There was a small issue on arrival with the cleaning but this was dealt with very quickly and efficiently. Parking at the nearest car park was easy despite the uphill walk to get there! Would stay again.

  • "On the whole, this is a charming little bungalow in a great location, ideal for exploring the town."

    Reversing up the lane to drop off bags is tight but doable, but would recommend instead just dropping off at the top and walking down - it’s really only 30 seconds or so! There were a few minor maintenance issues, however. The spring on the dishwasher detergent door was broken so dishwasher tablets would not get released during the cycle. One side of the toaster did not work. The garden was a little overgrown, with a thorny rose bush and other plants hanging over the path to the front door. And the skylights could do with a clean inside - there were many cobwebs!

  • "It was a lovely little bungalow with a great garden, however there were things I would have liked to have known before arriving."

    The lane is VERY narrow, in the handbook inside the property it says its best to reverse down the lane, actually I think drop things at the top and walk them down - its not very far. The closest car park is Woodmead which doesn't come up as long stay but this summer (2023) was £35 for 3 days or £65 for a week. The other long stay car parks are £15 a day which was more then we'd expected but it took us a while to find Woodmead. It was a last minute booking and despite phoning the number provided this info was hard to come by, as we had limited time to research. It spoilt the first day or so with confusion and stress especially for my 83 year old mother. Otherwise it was delightful and the best equiped place we have ever stayed. The garden was perfect, private and sunny most of the day. Thank you very much for the goody bag we enjoyed it!

  • "The Bolt Hole is a little gem tucked away across a personal footbridge across the river."

    It’s very quiet, apart from the quacking of ducks. The accommodation, for us, was perfect. It lacked nothing, was very comfortable & had a small, sunny garden for outside relaxing. We would revisit.
