“Perfect Christmas.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

We stayed over Christmas and had a fantastic time. The house is beautiful and equipped with everything to make your stay perfect. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable. The owners had decorated the walls with balloons and streamers and a tree in the corner of the dining room complete with presents for everyone. So thoughtful. The bathroom had little complimentary bags of toiletries, and the kitchen had fresh flowers, tea, coffee, sugar and cookies. They really did think of everything. My only suggestion would be to consider putting a shower in the downstairs toilet, ease up morning congestion! I can't praise Ashstead highly enough and recommend to anyone wanting somewhere for a relaxing break.

“lovely property on working farm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed at the farm for 3 nights with 2 adults and 5 children aged between 1 and 6, as part of a big family reunion nearby. The house is lovely- well-appointed but unpretentious and homely. Helen and family were very welcoming and really the highlight of the trip for our kids was making friends with her lovely children and all the farm animals.
