    Once again the hosts provided a cosy and comfortable setting for a lovely Christmas break. Their welcoming and friendly service has long been one of the great attractions of West Bank. The surrounding area has many interesting places to visit. The town of Ashbourne has all the amenities you are likely to need and is only 10 minutes away.

    Have now stayed at this bungalow a number of times and the presentation, standard of cleanliness and warm welcome remain as always, superb

    A very clean and tidy cottage and well equipped. The only criticism I can make is the double bedroom is too small. I've had bigger bedrooms in a caravan. There was only a 6"-9" gap around the bed with a radiator at the foot of the bed and a window at the side. If you have to get up in the night you take the curtain with you and bang yourself on the radiator. I have a couple of lovely bruises on my legs. The owner Mrs Fox is very friendly and helpful. Overall our stay was very good and the cottage very nicely appointed.

    Another repeat visit to this pristine bungalow (in fact we booked for an autumn holiday the day after returning.) The number of repeat visitors like ourselves enables the property to speak for itself really.

    We were given a very warm welcome by Mrs. Fox and shown round the property without hast. Everything was clean and tidy with a view over the local farm land. A delightful location. The accommodation had everything you would need for a comfortable stay.

    This was our second visit to west bank We were not disappointed again the bungalow was very clean I had no trouble with my wheelchair as my portable ramp fitted kitchen door way so I could get out of my chair in comfort in the kitchen and use my walking frame around the bungalow We had a good week with only one wet morning It was great to watch the many birds as well as the squirrel Thank you very much for the bottle of wine, milk and biscuits it was very welcoming Jacque from Tamworth
