A really nice family in a really wonderful house. Everything was as agreed... and better. Felt like home. Thank you so much, Martin&Jo.
The moment I arrived, Jo was welcoming with a big mug of tea and great conversation. Both her and Martin excel at making you feel welcome straight away, like you're crashing at a friend's house (complete with adorable grizzly-dog!). The room itself is quite big, and looks out onto a quiet street. Bed was warm and comfy, WiFi was great, breakfast was a wide selection of cereals and spreads for toast. My first Airbnb experience, and it was great! Would definitely stay again!
I really enjoyed my stay - the room and house are spacious and beautiful, it was very well organised and I had a most inspiring chat with Jo about her travel adventures! Other plus points are the great location, lots of choice at breakfast and the fantastic views.
This is an absolutely wonderful place to stay, minutes by taxi away from the station and near a woodland walk with the beauty of the Lake District all (website hidden) and Martin were perfect hosts, going above and beyond for us, they were wonderful to talk to, really great people! I cannot recommend this higher.
Jo was instantly welcoming and hospitable, making me feel very welcome in her lovely home. She was accommodating of my late arrival and made me feel right at home. The room was perfect, spotlessly clean, warm and cosy, with a huge lovely bathroom right next door - which I had to (website hidden) was super friendly, we had some very interesting chats over cups of tea and a really nice breakfast in the morning, she also very kindly gave me a lift to the station the next day. I'd really recommend staying here, the house is great, Jo was very very nice and the location and ease of finding it etc is perfect. Thanks so much!
I have stayed here twice when cycling in the area. Martin and Jo are a very welcoming and make you feel at home instantly wih a cup of tea and a chat. The room is very comfortable and there is also a garage outside for bike storage.
Can't fault anything and look forward to staying many more times.
