    • “A lovely stay in a very comfortable house, warm and cosy, the perfect place for New Year!”

    Mrs Le Huray, TEDDINGTON, December 2018

    • “We had a lovely stay at White Horses. We were surprised that there were not any bins outside, so we called the local number and were told to leave the rubbish in big black plastic bags by the main gate. Also, there was no vacuum cleaner in the house, nor a hairdryer. The house provided us with everything we needed for a great break.”

    Mr Branston, Hitchin, October 2018

    • “This is a beautiful house in a wonderful setting. There are a few pointers that would elevate this house to a higher standard; - It was advertised as having a snug/office for use. However, this room had the owners personal belongings in it and was untidy and had an ‘unfinished’ feel with no furniture. It would be a great asset to the house to have this as a little snug/TV room for use. - There is no welcome pack or information on arrival. - There are no recycling facilities or information about bin collections. This really is poor in this day and age - Hairdryers would be a welcome addition - A clothes horse/dryer would also be useful - A vegetable peeler that actually peels would also be good! Other than the above, the house was clean, spacious and we had a lovely holiday.”

    Mrs Williamson, BICESTER, August 2018

    • “The house was lovely, beautifully done inside, wonderful views, fabulous garden, one of the best houses we have stayed in. Would definitely stay there again. We had a fabulous week. Two tiny points, it would be great if there was a full length mirror somewhere in the house, maybe on the inside of a wardrobe door. It would be useful if there was a book with a few instructions for the washing machine, where to find the WiFi code etc. Other than those 2 small points, perfect. Thank you”

    Mrs Tomlinson, Stafford, July 2018
