David, Linda & Chris – Stratford-upon-Avon

Our second visit has been just as exhilarating as the first. Thanks to Trysha and Grahams' thoughtfulness and attention to detail, we feel relaxed, cosseted and refreshed - who needs hotels when self-catering is as luxurious as this?

Keizer family – Netherlands

It has been a home for us for two weeks; you thought of everything to make us as comfortable as possible. We could even bake our own fresh bread. And every morning when drawing back the curtains we could see this wonderful view of the hills. Thank you! Surely we'll be back one day.
