"Maxine and her place are both in one word - outstanding! the house is truly stunning with so many activities on offer and plenty of areas to relax. Maxine was such a welcoming host, easy going and supper helpful! I couldn't recommend this place more and can't wait to go back." Nic, July 2021

"This venue was a dream, the pictures don’t do it justice. There was so much space for the 12 of us, and Maxine was the most amazing host. She had everything covered, extra toiletries, condiments, cooking/baking utensils. She was great, she left us to it, she genuinely wanted us to enjoy her house. 
The pool was lovely and warm, with plenty of deck chairs on the side, the tipi was a great touch too. I just wish we had more time to enjoy all the facilities. We cannot wait to come back."

"The farmhouse was the most amazing experience and my friend's and I would definitely recommend this place and hopefully be coming back ourselves! Everything exceeded expectations and Max and her team were extremely welcoming, helpful and attentive." Kayode, July 2021

"We had an amazing time at Maxine’s place. The house is incredible and has everything you could possibly need. Maxine was a great host and got back to us really quickly when we had a query. We will definitely be planning to go back soon." Jessica, July 2021

"Good host, always quick with the messages on the couple of occasions we needed to ask a question.
Great house and facilities with lots of little nice touches by the pool and in the games room to ensure you have good fun. While the hosts are on site, they very much allow you to do your own thing and we rarely saw them.
Everything all as described and would definitely recommend a stay."

"Absolutely amazing house for a group stay. Hosts were laid back yet always available should you need anything. Couldn’t recommend this place enough to get away and enjoy some time together as a group!" James, June 2021

"Stunning house with all the amenities / facilities you could want! Perfect spot for a group holiday, lots of space, great pool and tennis court too. Maxine and Ian were extreme accommodating and helpful." Rory, June 2021

"Maxine and the house are amazing. The house is huge and the pool/hot tub/outdoor space is great for a large group. Also had a lovely tipi where you could relax when the sun went down. No doubt we’ll definitely be returning. Maxine was one of the best hosts you can ask for. Would highly recommend." Dan, June 2021

"Wonderful place with amazing swimming pool and tennis court. My family & I loved our stay and would highly recommend." Tom, June 2021

"A well- overdue family get together in a beautiful house with stunning outside space. The sunsets were a sight to behold. Our party was made up of all ages and the house suited everyone, lots of space, beautiful yet homely decor and everyone loved the twinkly lights, not to mention the yurt, the tennis court and the perfect swimming pool! Maxine was a super host, very welcoming and approachable, yet very laid back too and nothing was too much trouble. Almost didn’t write a review, as this place is a hidden gem and was tempted to greedily ‘keep it’ to ourselves! Thank you for a lovely stay." Danielle, June 2021

"The place is lovely. Maxine and her husband [Ian], were very chilled and excellent hosts. Couldn't have asked for a better weekend."  Luke, May 2021

"Absolutely amazing house! The pictures don't do it justice. Maxine and Ian went out of their way to make sure we were settled and had everything we needed. They went the extra mile and we all really appreciate it. Thanks for everything." Bridie, May 2021

"A beautiful property with outstanding facilities and hospitality! Our kids loved the games room, tennis court and hot tub and refused to leave the house to explore the surrounding area. Dinner in the candlelit conservatory was magical and who doesn't want a master bathroom with a balcony. Highly recommended for families looking to spend some much needed time together away from everything." Adrian, October 2020

"This property is amazing. It's remote but is a lovely home with lovely grounds. Max was a stellar host. Super low key and very kind." Greg, October 2020

"Well, what can I say. What an incredibly beautiful house and its surrounding grounds are just spectacular. Maxine and co made us feel so welcomed and left us a box of chocolates for us to enjoy. The hot tub in insane, lights up beautiful colours at night and is the perfect temp. The kitchen and conservatory is stunning, with all the equipment you need to cook a big dinner. There is a games room for entertainment and plenty of lounging space to really enjoy and get cosy. The bathroom is just amazing also, picturesque in fact. We had a wonderful stay and would most definitely recommend and come back. Thanks again for the best stay, just what we needed." Jennifer, October 2020 

"The house is beautiful. Max and Ian are the most lovely, helpful hosts you could ask for and we couldn't recommend them enough." Aimee, September 2020
