“Lovely Home from Home”
Reviewed August 10, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Beautiful very modern house in lovely setting. Exceptionally clean with some nice touches like Sky Sports TV. The weather was poor when we were there but the house was such a pleasant space that staying in was a pleasure, The owners were very helpful but also respectful of privacy. Only minor negative was that we felt a car was necessary to get to a pub, shop etc, however we would definitely recommend this property and would stay again,

“Very pleasing and spacious house with charming owners”
Reviewed November 29, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The house is well positioned, superbly decorated and equipped and in excellent order.
The owners, who actually live in the property, moving out when it is let, were most helpful. All of our group were impressed by the property.

We did have a mishap which resulted in damage to a kitchen surface which we were able to resolve with the owners who were exceptionally understanding. I hope that others will enjoy the property as we did and I wish the owners well as they seek to further improve the property.

“Stunning house and beautiful place to stay”
Reviewed October 1, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We booked a weekend stay from Friday to Sunday. Arriving at the property we were met by one of the owners. We were shown around the house and given instructions as to how everything worked etc..Our first impression were Wow!! The decor was truly spectacular. Much love has gone into decorating this house. From the beautiful light fittings to the black wall paper in 2 bathrooms with diamante lizards, colour co-ordinated bedrooms and stunning bathrooms we found every detail to be perfect. The house is carpeted with beautiful cream carpet and we were all very careful to take our shoes off but might be an idea to take slippers or indoor shoes. Towels and toiletries were provided and I particularly liked the body moisturiser.

We were a group of 9 ranging from young to old adults. The kitchen was very well equipped, the only thing we couldn't find was oven gloves! The owners kindly let us use their tea and coffee and we all felt very much at home. We cooked a 3 course meal for 9 people and there was adequate cutlery, crockery, glasses etc..

We visited the Crown pub at Marnhull for an evening meal which was good hearty pub grub. . Very reasonably priced and the food was tasty. On Sunday we went to the Ship at West Stour. Again a good local pub serving a great Sunday lunch with exceptional Yorkshire puddings.

Overall we had a brilliant time and would highly recommend staying at this beautiful house. All being well we hope to return next year.
