  • The house was fantastic, it was very clean on arrival and Alexander had sent us very clear instructions on how to find the house and also how to operate things upon arrival.
    Setting is amazing, very quiet and well maintained courtyard. The house was perfect for our needs however the garden was a little 'un touched' and we we had to keep the children away from the trampoline as it was not in a good state.
    Our weekend was most enjoyable.
    Alexander madesure we had all the instructions prior to arrival and we did not need to contact him during our stay.

  • I've actually stayed here before and I can see myself staying here regularly. The convenience of being so close to London yet in an historical rural setting is awesome. Alex the host was across every minute detail and made sure that my stay was very enjoyable.

    The place is beautiful and I highly recommend it. The area has some nice little pubs, too, and is great for driving around and exploring.

    Really looking forward to my return.

    I should be keeping this place a secret ;)
