Abel stayed in August '20
We had a really good time
Watson stayed in August '20
With reference to the above booking from 10 August 2020. I just had to let you know what a great time my family had at Herdlow Grange, especially given these uncertain times. We left early and en route Paul (who I assume is the site manager) texted to say that the property was ready way ahead of time. He had pulled out the stops. This was much appreciated as my young grandchildren were arriving and we needed to feed them. He also said he would visit the property that afternoon to answer any queries we had which he duly did. Even the Waitrose delivery arrived on time. The property was brilliant, just what we wanted. It was spotless and we were confident Covid secure. We perfectly understood the reasons for an early departure and the need to strip the beds etc. This was no problem. I appreciated your flexibility regarding the date the balance was due to be paid as the Covid rules appeared to change daily. We took the chance and so pleased we did as everything was perfect and was just the medicine required for the family. We look back on our break with such joy and none of us caught Covid or had any symptoms. Thanks again and I wouldn't hesitate to book with you again and to recommend your company to others (which I have done).
Larkin stayed in December '19
“The house is in a beautiful location with some lovely views and walks. Very clean and comfortable with everything you could need for a trip there. The hosts were very hospitable and quick to respond. Would definitely recommend!”
anonymous stayed in November '19
The house was very well present and equipped, we will look at using other venues and will certainly recommend your homes.
Gylee stayed in September '19
Thank you - the week-end went very well, with good dry weather and a reasonable amount of sunshine. Tracy Stewart provided a first class meal on the Friday evening (Dining In), one of the recommended caterers on your list. Very pleased with the choices, the quality and the service. Really enjoyed that evening. We ate at the Royal Oak twice, once on Saturday evening, and again on Sunday afternoon. Both very good, good quality (and quantity of food) and timely service. We would recommend The Royal Oak, but then judging by the number of customers there, they already know it is good! Everyone returned home safely. They have subsequently commented (favourably) on the venue and the location. So, I would conclude that our group were happy.
Lenton stayed in May '19
