    A warm welcome to a festive visit with most of our family. 21st birthday celebrated on our last day. A wonderful house with acres of space and plenty to do, eat, drink and talk. Days out to popular coastal resorts, and come back to exercise in the leisure center. A great memory for all who attended.

    We stayed at Wisteria house for Mockmas, a group of nineteen and enjoyed it immensely. The house is extremely comfortable, very clean and well equipped. Open layout downstairs make the house very socialable and plenty of room for all. Very accommodating owners who kindly supplied a Christmas tree for us.

    Fantastic venue for all our extended family. Catered for all of our activities even when it rained. Very friendly people who ran it and were available to address any teething issues. Would use the cottage again in the future. We have had several similar holidays in England and this was the best by far.

    A beautiful location but you need a car, the owners are very obliging and friendly. The house and out side facilities are excellent. This is the second time we have stayed at Wisteria House so that must say something. There are lots of places to see in the surrounding area's . If you have a large family like us it is excellent.

    We loved this place. It was extremely well equipped with everything you would need and spaces big enough to easily accommodate a large group. The pool was a big hit and the proximity to the coast is great. All in all, a top trump and we'll be back!
