Below are some past guest comments taken from our house comments book.
We’ve had a wonderfully relaxing 2 weeks here enjoying the warm weather, the fabulous views and the fantastic facilities. Don’t think we’ve ever settled into a holiday house so quickly – a proper home from home. The gardens are lovely, the pool has been maintained to such a high standard and the games and equipment have kept us all busy. To finish it all off Jane came along and prepared us a fantastic meal on our last night. Thanks to all.
This house is the most comfortable holiday home we’ve ever stayed in. The children were blown away by the selection of toys, table football, table tennis table, and above all the pool.
Jane’s meal was an absolute feast it was such a pleasure to come home to a meal ready and waiting in the fridge. The views are stunning and being able to sit so comfortably under the veranda watching the children in the pool was so relaxing.
