Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely New Year Break. The children all had a lovely time playing in the playroom & play hide and seek! You were a pleasure to deal with when booking the house and we would love to come back.

Fantastic large property for new years meet up!

  • 5 of 5

We rented The Firs as a group of 4 familes (8 adults, 8 children) as a base for our first new years break together. The property was perfect for our needs with plenty of space and a well equipped kitchen. The children had plenty of space to play both inside and out and the communal rooms were plenty big enough for us to all share in the celebrations together. Thank you, we will be back!

Beautiful property, amazing host!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in the house for a weekend to celebrate my birthday.

Throughout the whole process Pam was excellent, always responding to my numerous questions about the house and surrounding area.

The property is absolutely stunning. It was huge, with great facilities and had all we required for our weekend in the country.

All in all a great experience.

Fantastic house and garden in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent the weekend here as 4 families with children from age 1 to 11. The house is amazing, a comfortable home to stay in with loads of space and suitable/fun for all the children due to the trampoline, play house and garden big enough to play some team games! It is really peaceful yet there is penlty to do within a short drive if you can drag yourself away from the house. We have already re-booked for next year. Helen, John and friends.

Birthday Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property with friends and family last year to celebrate my 30th birthday and had a brilliant weekend. The house is beautiful. Its very large so you don't get under each others feet, but manages to feel cosy and homely. The owners were very friendly and helpful, leaving wine, bread and info. The dining area was perfect for the Saturday night when we got a take away, the lounge was comfortable to chill together. My only wish was it was my house!

A perfect weekend in the perfect house.
