The best host I have encountered, so accomodating and flexible. Had no issues even though our plane was late and we didn't get in till close to 2AM. 10/10 recommend to all and would like to return!

Response from Melanie:
Hello Charlotte, I am so sorry that you had an issue with the shower, although it is unclear from your comments what the issue was. As you know, it is just a handheld shower attachment to our bath. I hope at the very least you enjoyed your week's free parking and the courtesy trip to the airport. We always aim to go above and beyond for our guests and are very sorry to hear that on this occasion we appear not to have delivered.

What a wonderful host and lovely family home. My mother stayed with Melanie and her family and enjoyed her trip very much. The house and grounds are beautiful and she had a relaxing and peaceful night. Highly recommend.

Our stay at Melanie's home was unforgettable. The room was clean and tidy. There was a small fridge in the hallway where I was able to keep food fresh. We had breakfast in the conservatory with views of the beautiful and well-kept garden. It felt like we are submerged in nature. Melanie is a very generous host and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. She not only prepared breakfast for us, but also took us to the airport on the day of our departure. That was completely unexpected and therefore even more highly appreciated. Thank you!

I love travelling, good food, good company and beautiful scenery. I have visited many countries over the years in Europe, the Americas, Asia & Africa on business and for leisure.

I love my family home to be open house to friends and family and enjoy the companionship of three noisy, bouncy dogs and two cats alongside my husband and quite grown up children.
