Gorgeous spacious house, perfect for a break

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights in Cherrytrees farm as a group of 8 friends over new years and it was perfect. The house was in a beautiful condition when we arrived.

The kitchen is spacious and well stocked with all the pots, plans and plates we could need.

The bedrooms were all nicely made up and comfortable. NB: you have to walk through bedroom 3 to get to bedroom 4, but we worked that out ok between us.

We made use of some of the board games in the cupboard, with the dining room a great space for 8 to sit comfortably.

The DVD player in the living room also got some use, and there were good sofas/armchairs for us all. Managed to get the wood burner going on the 2nd day (needed newspaper!) but some of us found it too hot once it was going!

We explored some of the local area but not much as the house was so comfortable and the weather wasn't great. More to see and do - we would definitely come again!

We stayed four weeks to visit with family and check out old haunts. The house is very comfortable and was ideal for our large family gatherings. The responsiveness of the owners and the property itself made a significant contribution to the overall success of our vacation.

Prospective renters can have complete confidence that the detailed listing is accurate and that what other reviewers have said is true.

We heartily recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, I hope the loss of a star isn't because of the missing cake, as we were away on holiday in Italy the week before your arrival we were unable to leave a fresh cake which is why we left boxes of biscuits and some wine instead 😎

Amazing home for a relaxing break

This was an amazing home for our long bank holiday weekend break. There were 4 couples in our group and this home provided a great base and a relaxing space for the weekend. The owners are great and made us feel very welcome - thank you so much! Highly recommended!

An Absolute Treat!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent four nights at Cherry Trees Farm while attending a family wedding nearby and it was such a treat. The house is stunning and beautifully presented and at the same time so homely and comfortable. We immediately felt very relaxed. Everything we could want and need in a home from home was provided, as well as many other very generous and thoughtful extras. The outside covered seating area is amazing and it was wonderful to spend the evenings sitting outside overlooking the beautiful gardens. We also thoroughly enjoyed exploring the orchard (the plums were delicious) and watching the wild rabbits running around at dusk. The elephant was quite a surprise! 😊. We would definitely love to stay here again ... Thank you Mandy and Nigel for making us feel so very welcome, it truly enhanced what was a wonderful family occasion.
