    “Perfect house for a family celebration.”

    We had a great long weekend at Waterside ...

    We had a great long weekend at Waterside. The house is ideal for a family get-together or celebration. Mandy was great in making sure everything went perfectly and the fresh bread from her local bakery went down a treat. The house is in a great village location, close enough to the main roads to get about easily yet secluded enough to enjoy the peace and quiet of the surrounding countryside. The gardens were beautifully kept and the hot tub was a great bonus even in November. (Would recommend packing flip flops to run between house and hot tub). The house was spotlessly clean, very well laid out with plenty of space for 8. It’s very modern and tastefully decorated with all mod cons to make your stay really comfortable. Within a 5 minute walk is a great village pub, ‘The Ley Arms’ who do a fantastic Sunday Lunch and some really good local ales. Would highly recommend it. Overall, it’s a great place to stay. We couldn’t fault it and would definitely come back.
