  • Vincent is an excellent host. We stayed here for 2 nights to go to Lake District and really enjoyed our stay. The location is good, and Vincent gave us few tips for some lovely locations around. Would definitely stay here next time when we plan to go to Scotland.

  • Orton was indeed the perfect stopover between wales and Scotland. A charming village with a church,shop,deli and great pub opposite Vincent's house . Vincent was very welcoming and we enjoyed his company. The room was clean with a very comfortable bed.

  • You are very nice and welcoming person Vincent ! I am so happy that we made the right decision to stay at yours. The house has a character and is thoughtfully kept ! We just loved sitting close to the fireplace whilst having drinks at home..haha..Thoroughly loved out stay at your place. House had everything we wanted - fully equipped kitchen, hot water all the time - Well everything !!! And thanks for the complimentary snack etc. . It was a really good gesture of yours! Appreciate it. The travel time to most places was not more than 30 minutes drive, so all good there as well. Loved the walk in little Village Orton and also the local (super local for us) pub behind the house. Thank you for everything. Cheers

  • Vincent was a great host - accomodating our late arrival, and providing a highly entertaining chat over breakfast telling us about his travels and his life experiences!

    The room was lovely, with a very comfortable bed. The house is very conveniently located if you are stopping over on the way to Scotland (which is what we did) as it is ony a few miles off the M6 - with the added bonus of a chocolate factory next door which we realised in the morning!

    We would certainly stay again and I would definitely recommend for anyone else to do the same!

  • It was a really enjoyable experience staying at Vincent's house. Vincent was an amazing host and helped us make the most of our holidays. We got some really nice recommendations from Vincent to help us explore the surrounding areas.
    The house itself is very clean,spacious and well kept with adequate parking space adjacent to the house. Most of the major attractions in Lake District are within half an hour's drive. I would wholeheartedly recommend Vincent's professional behaviour and kind hospitality.
