"A very happy weeks holiday and a chance to celebrate two birthdays. Perfect Mediterranean weather climaxed by dramatic thunderstorms. We have really enjoyed the beauty of the area. Thank you so much."

Catherine, September 2016

"Our stay coincided with the arrival of 10 baby ducklings in the plant pot on the front lawn. We felt very lucky. Thank you"

Nick, June 2016

"We've had a lovely week and have really relaxed in North Lodge. The cottage is really comfortable & cosy, the wildlife (in the shape of numerous ladybirds) very interesting!! We visited Audley End House, & enjoyed the hospitality of several of the village pubs - but the highlight was a guided tour around Capped Hall: Sad to leave but we'll hopefully be back. Thank you!"

John, April 2016
