"All I could wish for"

Peter and Louise made me very welcome. The facility is spotless and very comfortable. Every basic supply was provided, including home made preserve.
Situated in a quiet village, with plenty of local attractions and walks.

"Excellent place to stay with extremely friendly owners."

Our holiday in Wickham House was brilliant, we were made very welcome by the owners & felt very 'at home'. It was very easy to travel to varying tourist spots from this area. The countryside is very beautiful for walking, cycling & water sports at Rutland Water and fishing both there & at the Eyebrook resevoire. Overall a very lovely area & accommodation.

"No place better!"

I knew after just a few emails that this would be be a nice place to stay. My expectations were well founded and the establishment more than met my desires. The owners, Peter and Louise, are very accomidating and helped us sort out our needs for our 3 yr. old son.
We stayed for almost 2 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The fully equipped kitchen made it very convenient for us to cook our own meals. The availability of a large furnished living room/dining room area made it feel like we had a whole house at our disposal. 1 1/2 bathrooms also made for a stay that that felt anything but "cramped" as a single room in a bed and breakfast would have done. The nicely sized full bedroom was excellent and suited our needs as a family. My 3 yr. old son loved the lower lightswitches that were originally installed for wheelchair bound folks. This site would be IDEAL for people with disabilities.
5 years ago my wife and I came to the UK and traveled all around Ireland, England, and Scotland. We stayed in many nice bed and breakfasts along the way but it wasn't even close to what we had available here. Here you have half a house at your disposal and this is a great joy for such a long stay.
I can't say enough about how nice our experience here was. Peter and Louise spoke to us often in the mornings as we were heading out for our daily activities. They asked about our needs and concerns, offered help in many ways to us non-Uk types, and made sure all our needs were met. In the future I would hope to stay here again and would inquire as to the availability here before checking for any other place.

"OUR WONDERFUL HOLIDAY"

We are staying at Wickham House, Sutton Bassett, this is our 4th week out of 6 and we are having a wonderful holiday. The accomodation is perfect and our hosts Peter and Louise could not have been more helpful. It is a very nice area with lots to see but also very peaceful. There is lots of information on places to see and do in the area. I would strongly recommend the annex to everybody it is wheelchair friendly and we would certainly come back again.
