"We've enjoyed a relaxing stay catching up with family. This cottage is one of the nicest we've stayed in. So welcoming and well equipped. Thank you."

Andrew and Family August 2016

"One of the most beautiful holiday homes we've been to, very well equipped, and in such a lovely location - for us, this is picture-postcard England at its best. Sad to go back to Cologne after an all too short nine days."

Frank March 2016

"A beautifully presented Lodge and the perfect place to stay."

Jean March 2016

"Rachel and I just wanted to thank you to all of the staff at Spains Hall for such a wonderful weekend. We had such a lovely time and wanted for nothing while staying at Crest Lodge. It has been almost eight years since we were last there and the place feels as homely, welcoming, luxurious and pristine as the day we first set foot in it. Thank you also for looking after our tree so well. Our daughters, Molly and Freya, were so very excited to see it."

Darren and Rachel February2016

"Lovely place, peace and quiet, everything there you need with nice touches."
