    The house itself is lovely. The games room is a great asset and well stocked. The bedrooms are good sized and comfortable. The kitchen is also good with 2fridges, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. However a tumble dryer is needed as it took over 2days to dry clothes on airers and it would have been useful to have some basic cleaning items there. Like toilet cleaner etc so we could keep house fairly clean. Due to the fact it's next to a dairy farm the outside area is awash with flies. So we couldn't use the garden even though it was a good size. We also couldn't use the BBQ that was there. This was a great shame as kids really wanted to go out. It seemed to take ages to get anywhere we wanted to go due to very narrow lanes that we had to use. On reflection the house itself was fine but the location means we wouldn't go again.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Instaple House. We are delighted that you enjoyed your time in the property and we agree the games room is brilliant for kids and adults alike. The House is located in a rural country village and as advertised within the property description, we also own a small dairy farm. As with all countryside locations, there are a few flies outdoors during the warmer months but it’s nothing out of the ordinary. The same applies to the country lanes which are typical in rural places - they may take a little more navigating, especially when you are unfamiliar with the area but they still manage to get you from A to B. Many of our guests come to the House to have a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and with lots to do within easy reach; Instaple House is the ideal choice for a family holiday.

    Beautiful countryside holiday home. Very ideal for families. There isn't much close to the house . you have to travel at least 5 miles to get to anything decent. The house was well equipped with everything you might need including a pool table, foosball table, table tennis and loads of space and toys for kids. No wifi and not very good phone service was a bonus for us as everyone was present and not spending times on their phones :)
