A WONDERFUL HOLIDAY by Mr Metcalfe, Church Stretton, May 2016 on October 5th 2016
The converted chapel was stunningly beautiful as were the views through the arch windows. The games room and sauna were both well used and the overall spacious accommodation meant that everyone could totally relax and chill out. It was a wonderful holiday for us all.
OUT OF THIS WORLD by Mrs Grimston, Selby, May 2016 on October 5th 2016
The property was fantastic and the views were out of this world. There was plenty of everything, even a sauna. I feel very lucky to have stayed in such a beautiful house in a beautiful place. We didn't want to leave!
Shhh!...DON'T TELL ANYONE! by EMMA WILKES, STOURBRIDGE JUNE 2015 on October 5th 2016
It is with great reluctance that we post a review on this holiday rental for fear of not being able to book this again because we know how popular it will become. This is really a very special place - clean, beautiful and lovely. We stayed just for a short time and we're all mortified to leave. It offers such an amazing space with plenty of lovely bedrooms all with really comfortable duvets and pillows and such comfortable beds too- the en suite shower rooms for each of the rooms downstairs are wonderful and we all had hot water in wet room style showers. It also has a sauna which is wonderful to use when you have been out walking all day. Washing facilities were great too. The dining room boasts an amazing table which fits everyone and the kitchen comes fully equipped with everything- even a fantastic coffee machine. The lounge also fits everyone in, around a log burner that sadly we didn't get chance to use as we were lucky to have good weather- we would definitely recommend it to anyone and look forward to going back with our dog Charlie in tow very soon.... But Shhhh don't tell anyone”
