“Most relaxing Christmas in years!” Fantastic cottage - very clean and tastefully decorated with all facilities one could need. Welcome basket with lots of local cakes, biscuits, cheeses etc was a lovely touch. Great location, ideal for visiting Cotswold Wildlife Park, Birdland etc. Would definitely recommend and hope to return.
We, a famliy with 3 children (9 - 15 years) have spent our summer holiday in GB for the first time - and it was really perfect.
The house is originally from 1850; the apartment has been renewed within… More

The house is in an excellent sea front position and the sea views of Herne Bay are exceptional
“Great Location Good for Teenagers and Shopping Very Comfortable” The arrival arrangements were spot on and the start up food pack was welcome.The parking was not a problem and we always got a space after being out. We went to Flamingo Land which is quite close but the weather wasn't the best. The accommodation was perfect for the two girls with them having their own room on the same floor as the lounge which meant they could stay up longer watching telly. The Internet signal was a bit hit or miss and I feel needs to be better for the youth of today.We ate out most nights except for the last one where we had a carry out from the Chinese at the top of the road which was first class.We had excellent communications from the owner and was well impressed with the flat. If we were to return to York we would definitely try and book the Coach House.If you are in doubt about booking don't be it's definitely a good accommodation of good standard in a good location .
York is lovely, interesting city with friendly local people. The accommodation is well situated to walk into town and not too far from uni which was the focus of our visit. Quiet apartment, clean spac… More
“A great base in this traditional Norfolk Cottage” Located in a tranquil area - as soon as we arrived we relaxed in the well equipped cottage. Having the beds made up, towels provided and bread, milk, tea and coffee was a nice touch. During our stay we visited:
Sherringham - went crabbing off the rocks and had fish and chips on the beach, we even went in the sea.
Mundesley - had a beer in the pub and walked along the beach.
Wroxham - watched the boats and more fish and chips.
During our stay we also visited the local pubs - very nice and had a bbq in the beautiful cottage garden. We would definitely stay here again.
“Absolutely perfect” Very comfortable cottage with lots of lovely little "add on's" that make the stay a little more luxurious (e.g. wine and flowers on arrival, lots of fresh coffee via tessimo machine, free broadband and incoming telephone line). Very comfortable cottage and lovely log fire.
Perfect location within Cornwall to explore to the north or south and the wonderful Heron Inn next door for food. All in all, a brilliant place to stay and I highly recommend it.
“Beautiful, Cosy, very homely, and such a fantastic location we loved it there !” The house is so beautiful, clean, fresh, warm with a real homely feel.
Decorated to a very high finish with all essential appliances included.
The children loved the house, it felt safe and extremely cosey.
Its is a fantastic location, with a supermarket, a variety of take aways and pubs on your doorsteps and so close to Stratford upon Avon and surrounding villages and towns.
Would strongly recommend this property.
“Birthday in the jungle in a good way!” Oak Retreat is such an unusual place to stay. Mark and Sara have created an idyllic spot in their 'shed' as we christened it. It is far from a shed as the lodge is built and kitted out beautifully. The highlight though is its setting amongst the plants and trees and the clever lighting. It is magical particularly at night when the canopy is subtly illuminated. You can sit on the comfortable balcony which is under cover if it dares to rain. You can listen to the trickle of the stream and waterfall and it is totally relaxing. You can also wallow in the hot tub to feel even more indulged. After a very warm welcome you are left to your own devices in total privacy although help is on hand should you need it. A perfect break in a lovely little town. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay here particularly if you are celebrating something special. We would certainly wish to return.
We stayed for 2 nights in the lodge and it was just perfect!! Beautiful views with peaceful surroundings. The lodge is stunning and with the added luxury of the hot tub and not to forget the waterfall… More

“A beautiful house for a get together with friends!” This is a gorgeous property which is perfect for a group of people to have a get together as there is plenty of space. The lovely kitchen has a great big table which you can comfortably all sit round to eat and chat. The rooms are all decorated beautifully, with a real home from home feel. It was a really personal touch that we were left some 'fizz' by Jill the owner and this certainly did not go to waste! She had also left tea bags,hand soap, dishwasher tablets etc. which is unusual for a rental property. The only downside is that we felt a bit worried about any noise we made, after reading the welcome booklet, which says we could lose our deposit if we made too much noise. It is quite difficult for 15 people to make no noise after 10pm, as just that number of people talking can be a little loud. Maybe this could be worded a little differently in the book? However, there were no complaints or issues with our deposit so we did not need to worry. Perfect location for Brighton sightseeing as there is a regular bus at the end of the road. Would definitely recommend to others

“Beautiful home from home, superb location!” The "cottage" was fantastic and even better than the images portrayed. I use inverted commas because it's a tardis of a place and easily accommodated my wife and I, 2 kids and one grandma! Ideally situated for Chester and needn't have used the car at all other than an expensive trip to Cheshire oaks and a promise of an afternoon in the cavern for Beetles-mad Grandma! Highly recommend this wonderfully appointed home from home !
