“Great Home in a Great Town”

Reviewed 4 Dec 2013

A wonderful experience, we loved the large beds in the two large bedrooms, double shower heads in both bathrooms as well as a hand shower in the bathtub, a very modern interior for an older home. All mod cons including dishwasher, washer and drier. A large separate dining area with a table that comfortably seated eight. We enjoyed the Pubs, Butty's Cafe for breakfast and sandwiches and the One Stop convenient store that were all in short walking distance. TV's in every room with satellite programming that we didn't watch much but were great for the kids on a couple of rainy days. The WiFi internet allowed me to do a little business and check out local attractions, all in all we were very happy with the home and the price!

We love Blakemans House too but it's good to have our views confirmed. Thank you for taking the time to write such a full and positive review.

“Beautiful house and location will all the creature comforts you enjoy at home”

Reviewed 8 Dec 2012

My criteria for a trip is usually I wouldn't want to stay somewhere that I was less comfortable that I am at home. At Blakemans House we were not dissapointed in anyway. It's a beautiful home in an idyllic location just off the village centre with everything you could need for a restful stay. We would would highly recommended and wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

We think it is beautiful too! Good to have it confirmed in an independent review
