    Mr Billett – 1 Dec 2018
    "When we arrived the house was spotless. Its not a new build, is clearly very popular and well used so is comfortable in the nicest way, it really did make us feel that our family Christmas was in a "home" environment."
    Mr Tuckett – 1 Sep 2018
    "It is close to many interesting and beautiful locations, including National Trust properties, the National Space Centre, a steam train service, a tropical bird sanctuary and country parks. The house itself is spacious and comfortable, with exceptional kitchen facilities. The garden includes a swimming pool which is well maintained. The village of Woodhouse Eaves is well supplied with good pubs, restaurants and general stores. We had a family holiday here and had an excellent week."
    Mr Smith – 1 Jul 2018
    "We needed a house that would comfortably accommodate 16 for our 50th wedding anniversary. The house and grounds are spectacular, the support staff (led by Sue) couldn't have been more welcoming and obliging. Our forward planning included some local sightseeing. However, we couldn't entice the grandchildren from the pool and grounds. The cars hardly left the drive. All the family agreed it was a perfect week!"

    "The house and contents were excellent and nothing else was needed. We had four generations of family in my group and every one was well catered for in terms of entertainment and equipment. The games room, large trampoline and swimming pool provided hours of enjoyment for all. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to all who were interested."
    Mrs Sylvia Sheppard, Rotherham, South Yorkshire

    Mrs Lorraine Harley, Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire
    "This is a perfect place for a week away from home. It was an amazing property for families, the 5 children (2-10) that were with us all had the best time. There was so much for them to do; swings, pool, trampoline, games, and plenty of trees for climbing in the garden! We would love to stay in this property again!"
