WE LOVED SPENDING TIME IN THIS HOUSE by Mr Rahman, Northampton, March 2016 on October 14th 2016
A fantastic property. The whole family loved spending time in the house, especially the hot tub and sauna. The kids loved the cinema room and table tennis, whilst the snooker table went down a treat with the adults. We enjoyed a BBQ on the first day in the lovely BBQ area with plenty of seating and nice lighting.
A PERFECT GETAWAY by Mrs Jones, Northwich, May 2016 on October 14th 2016
Absolutely fantastic property which is perfect for a long weekend to get away with friends.
THE HOUSE WAS PERFECT by Mrs Skeels, Leicester, August 2016 on October 14th 2016
Great property, all the facilities were brilliant - the tennis court was used every day as was the hot tub. Rooms were good sized and ensuites/bathrooms again all just what you needed. There were 8 of us and the house was perfect - not tripping over each other - plenty of room. Coming home my rooms feel so small!!!! We had an amazing week and would re consider booking again - great location - we did the lakes one day then Blackpool another - just pick a road and go. The village itself was lovely lots of pubs and cafes - everything you needed.
