    John – 27 Nov 2018
    "Had a lovely stay with our 2 sons and their wives and our 3 grandchildren everything you need for a home from home stay with an added bonus of a swimming pool and jacuzzi which was enjoyed by us all thoroughly recommend and would come again"
    Junio – 30 Oct 2018
    "Should have a bigger tv at list 55 inches , also should have a better cleaning as sofa and etc not the best smelling at all"
    Hannah – 19 Sep 2018
    "The cottage was nice: lots of space, comfy beds, plenty of seats etc. Garden was nice too but it was a shame it wasn't enclosed because we had to follow our toddler around at all times in case she wandered onto the road/into the field (or the enormous hole in it!).There was a play area by the other cottages which is a nice idea but it was in a pretty poor state - our daughter sat on a bench inside the climbing frame and went through it.The pool was good and not over used which was lucky as it's quite little.The main complaints we had were that there was no wifi (or even broadband) in this property. I know that some people don't need to access the real world whilst on holiday but it's really frustrating for those of us who need to. The next is that there is no pub within a mile. or even 3..... we were so looking forward to a nice stroll tot he pub but no chance."
    Paula – 12 Aug 2018
    "The cottage was very spacious with a big patio set in a lovely garden. The swimming pool and hot tub were a great extra for our holiday.The overall setting allowed us to have a peaceful and perfect holiday, spending good quality time with our children."
    Josie – 4 Aug 2018
    "A really good family base with spacious rooms, a well equipped kitchen, good garden with a table for outdoor meals. We could spread out and enjoy ourselves. The swimming pool adds to the attraction and the climbing frame and play field were enjoyed by the children."
    Sally – 7 Jul 2018
    "We had a weekend stay for hen celebrations we were very impressed with the facilities,the owners, it is situated quite remotely and with the glorious weather we had you could have been anywhere. We had a fabulous time."
    Linda – 15 May 2018
    "We enjoyed our stay at kestrel. It was very safe for our grandson to run around inside. We also enjoyed the pool."
    Suzanne – 14 Apr 2018
    "Nice place to stay.Pool a bit cold.Car is a must as not close to any shops.Beds not great (bit hard) and sofas a bit springless.Lovely big dining table although lighting a bit too dim for us (we like our board games).Plenty of room for our group to spread out through the house. Lots of pool towels available.Lovely hot tub.Great shower.My 4 year old loved spotting the local wildlife...rabbits, phesants, small birds and pretty sure I glimpsed a barn owl."
    Ian – 24 Mar 2018
    "A large property and very well equipped. Swimming pool complex a nice facility and a spell in the hot tub was a great way to finish the day. Ideal location to visit a wide range of places. Highly recommended"
    Christine – 3 Mar 2018
    "Lovely house well equipped plenty of space for large families plenty of outside activities for children play area out door toys the swimming pool was brilliant indoor lots of towels supplied hot tub and plenty of seating for spectators we will definitely being going back we only live a hour away but felt we were a million miles away we celebrated a birthday there and were able to have family visit to celebrate the owners were very obliging highly recommend the stay"
    Eric – 21 Jan 2018
    "Had a very pleasant late Christmas get together in early Jan. Nice spacious house in Cambridgeshire " big sky" country. Well equipped with separate dining and sitting rooms. Didn't try the pool but it looked nice. There seemed good facilities for children outside for warmer weather and plenty of wildlife around. The track to the farm could do with a bit of work to smooth it out but that is a very minor point. A few miles from Ely but a small M&S on the main road a mile or two from the farm. First visit to that part of the country but would love to revisit for a better look around and would definitely consider staying here again, recommended."
