“perfect location, very spacious, modern, exceptional for a cycling holiday.”
Reviewed 23 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

stunning holiday venue for large groups. Owner very friendly and catered for our every whim. Very regular traveller and Larch House is up there with the best. Book it, trust me!

“Stylish and modern home in a peaceful and Idylic location”
Reviewed 22 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed here for a week and were very happy to have found this special place. It was hard to leave the log burning stove in the evenings and sitting outside in the sun with a coffee in the mornings.
It was so peaceful and the perfect location to be away from it all, but have a local town just a few miles away for great restaurants too.

Stewart and Chrissie were very helpful and made us feel at home, offering us lots of insights and tips, as well as the best cycling locations etc.

Hoping to book for the summer with friends.

“Excellent home from home”
Reviewed 21 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Visited here in Feb for a birthday celebration and all we can say is WOW!! From the minute we arrived was pure relaxation and what stunning scenery. Well located for all biking routes and easy access to shops etc in surrounding area. The house features underfloor heating and an amazing log burner. All fixtures and fittings are of a very high standard and the place is extremely clean. So nice to be able to totally relax in beautiful surroundings and it's so peaceful. Also so much room so we never felt like we were crammed in and there were 10 of us in the party. Everything from start to finish went without a blip...the owners are the nicest people you could meet and I believe if anything was to have went wrong that nothing would have been to much hassle for them...Would we stay here again...YOU BET we would and can't wait to return
