      We recently stayed at The Homestead for my sisters Hen weekend, with 12 ladies and 1 man, this property was absolutely perfect. It was spacious, clean and with lots of lovely touches. A real home from home feel. The owners were also very friendly and happy to help with any queries we may have had. I would not hesitate to book here again, in fact I’m already thinking about returning for another family gathering. We also arranged via mulberry cottages, for a chef to come in and make us afternoon tea. Again an amazing experience, would highly recommend, and Pietro our chef was so lovely. The fact he also made everything from scratch was just perfect. 5* all round.

      They were great to work with, everything they promised they could do, they delivered . It was a great house. They might just want to drop a call in to the Booker a week before because sometimes you just want to run through things over the phone. Martin was great, he couldn’t do enough for us and every time I called him he picked up the phone straight away. The house was absolutely perfect for us, it was clean and tidy and had so much character. A lot of thought had gone into it. The only improvement they could make would be to ensure there are enough towels for all the guests as we were short on a few however Martin sorted this straight away! Great stay thank you!

      Prompt, helpful and courteous! Lovely home, Martin was great - helpful, friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed our time at The Homestead, the peaceful surroundings, the number of rooms and the interior of the house was very clean, well furnished and comfortable. Perfect for our stay!

      We would be very happy to recommend Mulberry Cottages as booking agents Perfect sized house for our large party with plenty of space to move around and plenty of bedrooms. However there was a lack of hanging space in bedrooms as owner had locked all fitted wardrobes which housed his own clothes. Bedding itself was OK but towels too small for showering and should probably be replaced with new ones. Disappointed in the kitchen - very grubby in areas and could do with a deep clean. Cupboards very scuffed and mucky. Did not like the fact that the owner keeps his own food in many of the cupboards which limited the areas we could use. Several drawers in kitchen were full of owners belongings and were very messy and grubby. For the money we paid for this property we did expect a higher standard of cleanliness in the kitchen area. Please also note the toaster in the kitchen was a 2slice model - not adequate for large groups. Living room would benefit from a couple of occasional tables as well as the coffee table supplied - lack of areas to put glasses and cups on. Heating was very efficient and log fires very beneficial too.

      We had a wonderful time at the Equestrian in Waltham for Chriistmas. We were a family party of mixed ages plus dogs. The house was perfect for our needs, clean and very spacious. Well equipped but could have done with a few more wine/prosecco glasses ?? Highly recommended. Beautiful location with fabulous views, some may feel a little isolated we liked it. Hard to find at first in the dark

      Very easy booking process and got sent lots of information with all the details I needed. I was always able to phone, email or use the live chat which is very useful. I even got a call from someone very helpful to assist with my booking. A group of 13 who thoroughly enjoyed their stay. Upon arrival we were greeted by the owners ,who were extremely welcoming, and given a tour of the house. The house really was fantastic and had even more room than it looks like on the pictures. The beds were extremely comfy and the rooms/bathrooms clean and spacious. The garden area was great for having a kick about/frisbee etc. The kitchen had all the tools we needed to prepare and cook food. Overall I can’t really praise this place enough and intend to return with my family in the years to come.

      Great communication, extremely helpful staff, quick service Everyone was thrilled with the venue we chose for the hen do. It was a great party house, was a sociable space and was well appointed. Nice to have a house that had plenty of space for the guests it listed it accommodated! Beautiful grounds, gardens and views too.
