My Clients absolutely loved the house and the accommodations. Rachael was very informative and was always available for the many questions my clients and I had over the time we book the house and the time of the arrival. The check in process was very informative and this was a detailed list of destinations and drive times that my clients needed when they got their to plan their daily trips. Rachael was great and my clients look forward to using her rental in AZ when Spring Break Rolls around.
Rachel was a fantastic host, super and greatly accommodating of all or needs. Thanks so much!. Your house is fantastic to say the least, spacious, relaxing and really special.
We will be back for sure.
A really great base for a weekend of exploring London and the surrounding area, for a larger group the outside area and the large kitchen and living room were spot on. We didn't find ourselves wanting for anymore! Thank you!
The reservation was canceled 8 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Needed a quick break from a hectic schedule and was looking for a place that was surrounded by peace and tranquillity but still in (or close to) Greater London, so I could attend any business in London as it arose. This place fit the bill perfectly.
What I didn't expect was the absolute luxury that I felt as "Lord of the Manor" in this historic house. I had everything I wished for - huge entertaining area, great Internet connection and comms, massive kitchen facilities, super-size TV, and generous hosts.
Looking forward to staying at my sanctuary again very soon.
A disappointing visit. House was shabby, grubby and in need or repairs e.g. dangerous socket in kitchen, one shower with large leak, which had been 'repaired' with a flannel over the top of it! No hot water or heating on arrival as boiler broken so had to wait for plumber to repair, about 2hrs. Garden is dark with minimal planting, covered in wood chippings and at a steep angle. The trampoline was at an hazardous angle and in our view dangerous. Empty compost bags, tin cans and cigarette butts were lying underneath. There is no working house phone contrary to the published details and mobile phone signal is poor.
I am sorry that your trip to London was disappointing. You arrived very early.If you had arrived at check in time the plumbing repair and cleaning would have been complete . In the photo's of the home it shows exactly how the garden looks- At the very end of the garden is a trampoline that is very popular with families and it conforms to safety standards. The garden does have a slope and i am sorry you found that steep .There is a 100 year old oak tree at the end of the garden which may mean that there is more shade than other gardens, sorry.
There is a working telephone, high speed internet and cell connection at the house .
I spent much time trying to reach you through email ,airbnb desk and by telephone.The contact details you supplied were incorrect which made communication impossible. We have a strict policy about no smoking inside the home but we do allow smoking in the garden. We provide ashtrays outside and you shouldn't have found butts in a tin can under the trampoline. I will make sure that the gardener checks for hidden cig butts in the garden from now on.
Such a beautiful house in lovely surroundings - we absolutely loved our stay here and would come back without a shadow of a doubt. thank you so much for having us :) Kaye x
