  • "We have spent Christmas week at 12 Bank street and from the first impressions through to the excellent communication with the hosts, we were not disappointed."

    We walked in and the radio was playing in the kitchen/diner, the house was sympathetically trimmed for Christmas.We have stayed in holiday homes for years and this house is outstanding, every thing thought through. I cooked a traditional Christmas dinner without worrying about a shortage of equipment.The quality of everything is to a hight standard, home from home. Look out for the remotes for the lamps, a really nice touch and something we have already bought for our home.Nice touches all around the house. We spent more time than we would normally in the house due to the miserable weather and found it very comfortable. The local shops and pubs were visited and everyone friendly and welcoming. We unloaded outside the house and then parked a minutes walk away and had no issues when we went out and returned in getting a parking space. Whether a visitors book would be useful? we did not locate one and maybe a throw to use in the lounge as whilst the heating and log burner are very good, its nice to feel cosy. No hairdryer at this time in the house which is fine as long as you know before you arrive. We would definitely recommend a stay. Thank you Alan and Jamielah.

  • "We stayed at the cottage for 1-month while we were in the process of moving and we could not have asked for a better experience!"

    We were warmly welcomed with a bottle of bubbly, a selection of fancy gins and basics such as milk/ teas & coffees. It's clear that a lot of thought went into the decor and facilitites. It's a very stylish and comfortable space. The kitchen also has any utensil/ electrical appliance/ pot/ pan, etc you could possibly need. As an eco-conscious couple we very much appreciated the eco-friendly touches, such as the reusable shopping bags, refillable toiletries & cleaning supplies. Not that we needed to worry about cleaning, because the hosts arranged a full house clean once a week for us, which included a bedding change & fresh towels. The hosts were also super flexible & always on-hand if we ever needed anything. We would highly recommend staying here & hope to stay again next time we're in the area!
