I have just returned from a four night stay with a friend and our two dogs in this wonderful house. It was a delight to find that the house was as lovely as it looked in the photos and that all the great reviews were true. Jo and Barry have thought of everything and Kriss from the hosting service was very helpful and made sure that our stay was perfect.
With wonderful walks from the door and plenty of beautiful towns and villages to visit close by, we were spoilt for choice on how to fill our days especially as it was difficult to drag ourselves away from the tranquil setting of the house and grounds.
We will certainly be returning and my only hesitation in recommending it so highly is that I fear it will be difficult to get booked in in future as it will be so popular.
What a fabulous holiday home this is in and around a beautiful lake setting, which our 2 Border Terriers loved walking around each morning. The setting around the lake was stunning. The house has everything you could ask for and we were spoilt by warm sunshine during our stay and enjoyed having a BBQ, sitting out all the time, dogs wandering around the decking and watching the ducks and had a daily dip in the hot tub with the sun rays beating down on us. The house is furnished beautifully, with plenty of towels, towelling robes, treats, books, games and DVDs. The sound system around the house was amazing along with asking 'Alexa' for some help and assistance! There are plenty of things to do close by or just a short drive away.and we enjoyed our breakfast out at the Lakeside Brasserie. This is a true gem and a credit to Jo and Barry the owners - and thanks for my birthday cake and message.
Just got back from a 4 day break and can highly recommended it. Lovely house in a stunning location. 4 adults, 3 Dachshunds and a 9 month old and everything was catered for. Had a high chair and cot left out for our little boy which was a huge help and doggie treats, dog towels and a hose for washing our pooches down. They loved running round the decking and it was great to know they were secure!
We arrived to find a huge victoria sponge ( omg....yum! ) and a bottle of prosecco and flowers in every room ... Lovely touch.
We never got to sample the hot tub sadly as the British weather was a complete let down but with loads of games, sky movies and a great selection of dvds we were kept entertained. Had the weather been nicer there's a great bbq and plenty of outside seating....
We did manage to get out and do some walks however and found a couple of places to let the dogs run off the lead ( thanks to Jo and Barry's guide book ! ) which they loved.
The whole house is extremely comfortable, plenty of towels, lovely toiletries, bath robes etc... a great deal of thought has been put into this house and we definitely hope to return .... Many Thanks ... Julie x
What a fabulous holiday home. The setting around the lake was lovely. The house had everything you need & more! Plenty of things to do close by or just a short drive away. After walking the dogs around the lake it was perfect to relax in the hot tub. It's the nicest dog friendly holiday home we have stayed in & will be back again & again! Many thanks to Jo & Barry for our welcome pack, Prosecco cake & biscuits.
You know that feeling you get when you enter a house and you just feel you've got to buy this house, or at least, move in and stay for ever? That's what get as soon as you walk into this house.
Our family of 5 felt at home immediately we were let in by Kriss, and he took us round, we knew we had the perfect location. Every possible requirement has been anticipated in the kitchen and the wide range of DVD & Bluray films and games is great.
The hot tub is simply the place to be on a warm Spring evening, looking over the lake.
As Arnie said, we'll be back.
I can only echo all the previous positive comments - just perfect and you will want for nothing when you are there.
I visited over Easter with my partner, two teens and two dogs. So much to do for all of us.
Everything is good quality and we felt we were a million miles away from home. The hot tub was an added bonus!!
Will definitely be back.
