The Turner House, August 2014
“We had the most fantastic family holiday here, so relaxing and peaceful.
This property really made you want to stay longer, like home away from home.
The interior was beautifully furnished and decorated, really well thought out.
The beds were very comfortible and we “LOVED” those pillows.
We found there was lots of activity to do in the area from water sports to biking, hiking or just exploring the amazing architecture at every turn.
We would recommended this Holiday rental for families and really perfect for groups on get away holidays.”

The Constable House, July 2014
“Beautifully decorated and situated in such a peaceful setting. Highly recommended”
The Turner House, December 2014
“It was a great pleasure to stay in Turner over Christmas. Carol gave us a warm welcome on arrival and plenty of helpful information.The house is very spacious (we were a party of 9), warm, beautifully furnished and decorated whilst retaining its historical charm and character. It is very well equipped throughout, particularly the huge kitchen which is fitted out to a very high standard. The beautiful Christmas tree in the living room was a thoughtful touch and the welcome gift of chocolates and mince pies was much appreciated. The woodland setting was great for walks and cycling. We spotted deer amongst the trees, birds of prey and a woodpecker. From Ashton village, we enjoyed walks on the Nene Way. It was also very convenient for Oundle and Peterborough. We would rate the quality of the accommodation very highly and would love to stay again”.

The Gainsborough House, December 2014
“We had the most fantastic Christmas week in the Gainsborough House! The Christmas decoration was lovely and the house itself is beautiful. It was very well equipped and we didn’t want for anything! Spotlessly clean it provided us with a magical place to stay over Christmas. We definitely hope to be back and make use of the Shepherd hut for Summer evenings and the BBQ. Thank you Carol for making us feel so welcome and for the lovely welcome treats”.
The Constable House, New Year 2014/2015
“We spent a wonderful New Year in Constable House with some of our friends. The property was spotlessly clean, very well-equipped and the perfect size for a group of friends (8 adults and 5 small children). The surrounding woods and countryside are great for exploring and looked magical on a frosty morning. We didn’t spend much time in the Shepherd’s Hut (bit cold!) but I can imagine a summer break would be wonderful here. Lovely touches too – such as the ‘welcome’ gifts and festive decorations. Would definitely recommend it.”
