Loved our stay
By Manuela on 10-Aug-2019
We loved our stay at the cottage. The beds were very comfortable, and the cottage was super equipped. We loved how close the cottage was to the City Centre, and shops were all in walking distance. It's close to the River as well . All in all we had a lovely holiday.

Great stay for wedding
By Kelly on 01-May-2018
We stayed at Guy's place while attending a friends wedding, and absolutely loved our stay! The home is so conveniently located, within walking distance to everything you need. The home itself is beautifully decorated and well kept. We loved the cosy fireplace especially on the colder, rainy evenings. Guy was an excellent host too. Always accommodating and quick to respond! Highly recommend if you're visiting the area, the location and quality of the home is top notch!!
Keep up the good work
