  • "Amazingly clean, well equipped, but could have done with a few kitchen extras: wooden spoon, small roasting dish & casserole dish."

    Also instruction on heating, which I found out via tik tok video! However, that aside it was brilliant & we've booked for next year

  • "We had a wonderful holiday at 'Through the looking glass' a well decorated house with an Alice in wonderland theme which was very well planned and thought out."

    The tunnel in the basement was amazing. The house was quiet, well equipped, clean, warm, comfortable with lots of hot water. The view of the canal was lovely with the Willow tree and spring flowers outside the front door. The welcome basket was an extra treat which we all enjoyed . We had an extremely relaxing stay and would definitely return.

    Thank you for your lovely comments and leaving Canal Road clean and tidy very much appreciated enjoy Easter David and Sue Property Owner
