“An amazing setting with all you need and more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We had an early family christmas followed by a naming ceremony and the owners bent over backwards to make everything work for us. An amazing view with lovely cottages with everything we needed, even two big fridges which was brilliant and a well equipped kitchen.
We all loved it with cows mooing and amazing hills and great friends and family.
Thank you.

“Stunning location, well appointed, comfortable accommodation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We have just returned from a lovely weekend break at Lapwing House. We are a group of 12 adults, family and friends, and booked all three cottages. All properties are well appointed and very comfortable. The kitchen in Lapwing House had everything you could think of in the way of equipment and (with the addition of the small table from Ash Barn) easily accommodated all 12 for dining.
The only downside is the lounge. There is very limited comfortable seating and although it didn't spoil our stay, some of the group had to make do with cushions on the floor. The large dining tables in the lounge just seemed to be in the way. There is a small 'snug' but not much use to us as we all wanted to be together in the evening.
We also decided not to use the ensuite bedroom in Lapwing House so that it gave us an extra bathroom for everyone to use.
These are very minor criticisms, just our view on how the properties could be improved when used by a large group of people. We had a very enjoyable time and wouldn't hesitate in recommending the properties to groups similar to ours. We would love to stay again in summer, the views are outstanding.

“Beautiful surroundings with all mod cons”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Stayed here with extended family. Lovely views out over fields and very quiet. Only hired Lapwing House but even though the adjacent cottages are tacked on to the main house, there was no noise from the neighbours.
The house itself has very creaky floors and thin walls so don't hire it if you all have different bedtimes! Sharing a bathroom between three rooms may be a problem if you're not a family too.
Apart from those nitpicks, there were plenty of mod cons: all the cooking stuff you could need and two massive fridges.
Near to lots of places to see and a useful local shop just down the road.
Fantastic for dogs, footpaths galore on the doorstep.

“Perfect location, accomodation, service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

From the initial booking to the return of deposit the service was outstanding. The barns were imaculate and a perfect set up for a large group made up of couples and families with young children (aged 4mths-3years). We stayed for a weekend and the set up was perfect for sociallising in the evening and playing with the kids in the day time....the Royal Oak was also the perfect place for a delicious meal on the saturday night.

“Fantastic Accomodation for a large group get together”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012 for a stay in December 2012

We have just enjoyed a fabulous weekend at Lapwing house and the adjoining cottages. There were 16 of us - 8 adults and 8 children varying from 6-16. There were plenty of bathrooms and loads of space for everyone to find their own spot - we never saw the kids they managed to keep out of our way and have a wonderful time. Lapwing house is in an absolutely stunning secluded spot - and this is great but bear in mind that 'Take Away' and convenience stores are not on your doorstep so be prepared. There are however a wealth of FANTASTIC pubs serving food in the area - not least the Royal Oak at Hurlow absolutely wonderful meal enjoyed here. Lapwing House is a wonderful 'Get away from it all retreat'
