Great weekend getaway

Perfect house for a weekend getaway. The house had all the amenities entertain a group of us. Nigel and Mandy were great, responded to emails quickly and provided us with all the information needed for the house and surrounding area.

Five star family weekend

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a fabulous long weekend to celebrate a family birthday. The house is furnished to a very high spec with every piece of equipment imaginable in the kitchen. Really impressed with the well stocked store cupboard which is something I haven't experienced in other houses I've stayed. The veranda across the back of the house was beautiful and we ate all of our meals outside but the big selling point of this property is the huge garden. We love to play cricket, rounders, touch football etc when we are all together as a family, and with so much space everyone's competitive sideline really came out. The table tennis room was also a big hit when rain stopped play. Thanks to Amanda and Nigel for the lovely chocolate cake and relaxed welcome. We are already talking about a return visit next year.

Phantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved the house. Very high standard. Ideal for our large party. Breakfast on the verandah was a perfect start to the day. Thanks a lot to Amanda and Nigel - and their friend Helen who guided us to the house over the phone in the middle of the night!

Gorgeous spacious house, perfect for a break

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights in Cherrytrees farm as a group of 8 friends over new years and it was perfect. The house was in a beautiful condition when we arrived.

The kitchen is spacious and well stocked with all the pots, plans and plates we could need.

The bedrooms were all nicely made up and comfortable. NB: you have to walk through bedroom 3 to get to bedroom 4, but we worked that out ok between us.

We made use of some of the board games in the cupboard, with the dining room a great space for 8 to sit comfortably.

The DVD player in the living room also got some use, and there were good sofas/armchairs for us all. Managed to get the wood burner going on the 2nd day (needed newspaper!) but some of us found it too hot once it was going!

We explored some of the local area but not much as the house was so comfortable and the weather wasn't great. More to see and do - we would definitely come again!
