    The house is a wonderful size and is perfect for a large gathering. The rooms are all spacious but the house is in desperate need of updating in some rooms. The house does not have WiFi, the owner who lives next door has the modem box in his house and the strength is not enough to come through a wall (not surprising) so it’s unfair to advertise this house as having WiFi. None of us had any phone reception either and it was lovely that no one could be on their phones but when trying to plan a day out it would have been helpful. The house needs a very good overall clean. It was very dusty and there is a lot of mould on ceilings etc. It wasn’t enough to spoil our holiday but we paid a very large amount of money for a August week and expected a higher standard for that money. There is only one en-suite, again the advert for this property says there are more. The downstairs toilet should be out of bounds as it’s leaking and there is no sink to wash your hand until you walk through to the kitchen. The bedrooms are very spacious and beds are comfortable. Everyone in our party slept well. Plenty of clean towels and hand soaps in each bathroom. Location wise it’s bliss. So quiet and local village has a shop and wonderful pub and fish and chip shop. Apart from some of the negatives (all easily fixable!) the house is wonderful. I just wouldn’t agree that the rate to hire reflects what you get.

    We rented Alminstone House for a 4 generation family celebration for grandad's 60th birthday, & it proved to be a pretty perfect choice for all 14 of us from great-grandparents to toddlers & we all had a lovely time! The house was warm & welcoming, with cosy bedrooms, plenty of crockery, cutlery, pots & pans, massive kitchen table & comfy seating in the sitting room. We lit the fire & it was a real home from home. The children loved the garden. The downstairs bedroom was useful but the only slight downside was the lack of downstairs cloakroom or bathroom for great-grandma who has difficulty using stairs... but we managed to help her up & down when necessary & it just added to the fun!! Thank you so much, we'd love to visit again... just maybe when the weather is a little better?!

    Great cottage - very clean, with ample of space and big rooms. I stayed here with my family of 14 for 2 nights and we had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay. The host lives next door and was available for any queries almost straight away. The cottage was decorated well with Christmas decorations, thus giving a very cosy and festive feel. The only downside was the WiFi connectivity which only worked well in certain areas of the house, however it is something the host is looking to change. Overall an excellent trip, and would recommend it to anyone. Thank you for allowing us a late check out on Sunday, it made the trip even more worthwile!

    Easy to find, perfect for our party weekend celebrating my hen do! Owner on hand to help with any problems. We will definitely go back for the next big group celebration. Better WiFi would be good, as there is very little phone signal!
