Recent feedback shows our focus on quality and value:

(These are only a selection)

July 2017 "We loved The Parks Cottage. It was very interesting with the eco side of it. The beds and bedding were very comfortable and everything was spotlessly clean and appeared new. Fabulous view and the house was always warm................ We had a lovely week and would recommend the property"

July 2017 "Thank you for a most enjoyable week. Horsegames Barn was very spacious and well appointed and in a lovely quite spot.We look forward to booking another holiday there in the future. We would certainly recommend this holiday cottage to anybody who wishes to explore this area" "P.S. Our dogs enjoyed it too"

July 2017 "Hi there - Haven't got 5 mins now but at the weekend very happy to send some feedback. We had a fabulous weekend and couldn't praise The Old Stables enough. Absolutely wonderful"

June 2017 "We had a good break at Honeysuckle. The property is very clean and tidy, and generally well set-out. The views are very impressive. It's a pleasant, quiet place for a holiday..................."

June 2017 "We had a really lovely week at Pheasant Cottage. The Cottage was very clean, beautifully done and had absolutely everything you could need. The owners were very kind and helpful and there were homemade biscuits and milk when we arrived....................."

June 2017 "Our booking was very straightforward and we received acknowledgement and directions promptly. The sixty photos of the Artists Retreat had given us a good idea of what to expect, but the reality was even better.

We'd looked at so many pictures of holiday lets which were either modern and fussy with hearts and fairy lights or furnished with junk shop furniture in lurid colours. The Artists Retreat offered something different: an aesthetic of classic simplicity. We loved the situation, the furnishings, and the shower. The kitchen equipment was of good quality and adequate for our needs. We appreciated the top sheet on the bed: so often we've been faced with duvets which are too warm with no alternative. The picture window from the bedroom was amazing. The glow from the log burner, the bottle of wine and the electric blanket were all part of the warm welcome we received from Mrs Cox and we appreciated her checking during the week that all was well. Most of all, we enjoyed sitting on the patio at the lovely table listening to the bees, birds and sheep and soaking up the peace. We went on holiday looking for a time of rest and restoration and found it here in generous measure.

Don't change a thing!"

June 2017 "Re our holiday at Caynham Forge (East Barn) we could write lots but will just say it was the BEST self-catering accommodation we have ever had, in a beautiful setting and two of the nicest owners (Alison and Keith) we have ever dealt with!"

May 2017 Everything claimed, and more - the accommodation, the setting, the remoteness, the birdlife; we could not have hoped for more. We very much hope we will be able to come again,................. We had a delightful holiday, thanks.  The Coachmans Cottage

May 2017 "What a beautiful place the restoration is amazing. Everything is catered for and you wanted for nothing. I certainly hope we can stay again. The views and wildlife were in abundance so peaceful (apart from the sheep and their lambs) but even the sound of them was great to listen to. It was just so relaxing."  The Granary

April 2017 "We loved our Easter Break stay at The Lanes. The Cottage was clean, comfortable and warm. The owners have gone to a lot of trouble to add those extra little touches and left lots of information on things to do in the area. I would recommend it with no hesitation"

April 2017 "High praise indeed for the owners' wonderful accommodation. Our little family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Callow View. It is close to amenities, and yet is set back from the village. The let itself is really well equipped, they really have thought of everything. I would highly recommend this let as a couple or with small children, it really is a lovely place, with plenty to do nearby. Thank you so much for having us"

April 2017 "I'll keep this short: it was brilliant. Many, many thanks."
As part of a booking for several lets in the same medieval building and its area. Petunia Primrose, Poppy, Fuchsia and Peony

March 2017 The Lookout: "Lovely, warm and clean. Couldn't have been better really. Excellent cottage in an excellent location. Cannot fault it."

February 2017 "We had a lovely holiday in Pheasant Cottage and told the owners upon our departure. Quietly situated in a peaceful village. Bathrooms were super. Plenty of hot water and a central heating system that worked! Not that we needed on very much – the cottage was superbly insulated. Lovely views and great walks. Tastefully decorated. Would recommend."

February 2017 "Hi guys, just wanted to let you know we had a fantastic stay at Sunnyside. Thanks so much for all your help, it was well worth it!"

(This was a particularly challenging booking for us at CHL featuring 4 pets and a Thursday to Sunday stay.  We are grateful for the patience of the guests that things went well)
