    A super home with every need catered too. The owners were really warm and inviting and had even gone to the trouble of baking a cake and putting fresh flowers around the house. Fantastic pool and leisure facilities. We’ll be back!

    Well what can I say bad about this accommodation? ( nothing at all. From start to finish of our break, we could not fault anything. The accommodation, the sports hall, swimming pool, and the scenery were all brilliant. My 2 Grandchildren had the time of their lives. My family acquired the property next door ( Wystetia House, and could find no negatives at all. In all 30 people shared the 2 lots of accommodation. Every single one of us enjoyed our long weekend thoroughly. The proprietors were 1st class, and very professional. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Top class hosts.

    Absolutely fantastic place to stay. Big enough for a family get together, pool and sports hall are a great addition too. Owners were lovely. Thank you, would definitely go back again.

    Had a fabulous stay at Poulston house for my birthday with family. We all had an amazing time. The house had a 'wow' factor about it as you pulled up and we were not disappointed when we actually went in. It was fantastic. The house was fully equipped with everything we needed. We couldn't find any matches anywhere for the BBQ so messaged the owner to see if they knew where they were. Within minutes they had come round and provided us with a box of matches. They gave me a card and a bottle of Presecco for my birthday which was completely unexpected. They also had baked a delicious cake. 2 lovely touches we felt to make our stay even more special. All the sports facilities were good and we enjoyed our swims in the indoor pool too. Plenty of space in the house for us all and beautiful grounds to enjoy in the gorgeous sunshine we were lucky to have whilst there. Bedrooms were all wonderful too with comfy beds and powerful hot showers. We did order a take away from a local Chinese and that was our only down side (hence the 7 rating). They didn't deliver our 2 egg rice and sadly by the time they had returned with them we had pretty much eaten our meal which consisted mostly of meat and sauce. A shame but nothing to do with the owners of the house. We didn't venture out of the cottage really as it had everything we needed for our long weekend so don't know about local amenities. It suited our family so well, we would definitely return again if we were looking to do a similar break again.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at poulston house. The house is a home that most people would dream of owning . The facilities are excellent, catering for my two year old grandson who is on the go all the time right up to me who isn't. The location superb, you must explore the area, too much to list. I have to mention the welcoming cake made by the owner, who I think could have won bake off.
