“Great rural retreat”
Reviewed 15 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Booked a weekend break for our anniversary. Cottage was everything we could hope for; quiet, cosy and romantic. Location was great being just outside Towcester and easily accessible to Milton Keynes for a day trip into London. Will be looking to book again for next year

“A Nice Cottage”
Reviewed 24 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

First of all, I would like to say that the holiday cottage we stayed at was really nice, clean and modern. It is conveniently located only a few minutes drive away from Towcester, the site itself has a nice kid's playground and a footpath if one fancies a walk. We were also greeted by beautiful house martins nesting all around the properties.

I have given this cottage 4 stars because there is a small space for improvement. First of all we never received any welcome email with details how to get to the cottage, etc. and it proved to be important as you need to enter a code at the gate to enter the site (which is a plus as it makes the site more secure). We did received the code by calling the number given on the website and also found out that the management is not located on the site. And here comes another minus - there was no representative of the rentals on the site, not during all 3 days we were there, so it felt a bit impersonal.
The only other suggestion, that is very minor, is maybe the owners could put some kitchen essentials in the kitchen cupboards, like salt, pepper and a bottle of oil and vinegar. These are the things that are used up very slowly but very inconvenient to carry around with you if you only come for a few days. All the previous cottages we have been to had those cupboard essentials available so I am thinking that is a common practice.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay at the Mouse House.

Dear Irina
Thank you for taking the time to submit a review on your stay in Mouse House cottage.
Just picking up on a couple of your points. The site gate code, key safe numbers and site plans were all emailed to you two weeks before your arrival date using the email address that you provided so I'm not sure why you didn't receive them.
With regards to leaving condiments in the cottage, we have received feedback from other guests asking for such items to be removed as they are potentially unhygienic.
Unfortunately I was away on holiday during your stay, but I understand that you did meet my house keeper who lives on site who was able to assist you.
I hope this answers some of your points and that you are able to come and stay with us again in the future.
Kind regards
Victoria

“perfect place”
Reviewed 24 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Lovely clean tidy modern apartment. Can't fault this accommodation at all. I was really delayed on my journey and found it hard to see where our apartment was in the dark when we arrived. Maybe a map of the complex could be added to booking confirmation to help.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed 17 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We spent long weekend in Mouse house. We rent cottages very often to escape from London hustle and bustle. Mouse house is definitely one of our favourites now. It's a fantastic place. Peaceful, comfortable,tastefully decorated, very clean and well equipped. Our cat Miya was well impressed with the under floor heating and spent the whole time happily napping under coffee table :)
The owners are absolutely lovely. Very helpful ( Victoria was patiently and promptly replying our emails before arrival:) and really friendly without being intrusive.
We are looking forward to our next visit!
