“A stunning nook”

I was insanely jealous as soon as I stepped into the courtyard. Photos don't do the cottage justice and I spent a few moments hugging the bed when I stepped inside. Abid and Susan have poured a lot of energy into making sure there is everything you could need there and their only fault is they won't sell it to me. One day perhaps but until then I will keep visiting.

Simply loved our stay in the gorgeous birds nest. There were so many lovely little touches which made the apartment feel so homely. Lots of care, thought and attention has gone into the place. Very charming and Sue and Abid are such lovely people. Couldn't have asked for a better holiday.

“A great home away from home”

We had a wonderful holiday staying in the Bird's Nest. It was everything we could hope for in a holiday flat. The owners, Susan and Abid, were the perfect hosts - they even picked us up from the train station (and dropped us back again at the end of our stay). The apartment was clean and bright, beautifully decorated, and well thought out for everything you might need. The kitchen was stocked with every utensil you might need to make your meals. The beds were comfy and plenty of towels and linens were in supply. I would certainly recommend this flat to any of my friends or relatives.

We (family of 4) stayed over Christmas at .Mole End apartment the lower floor of this mews block. The apartment was extremely well appointed especially the kitchen. Abid and Susan are brilliant hosts not too intrusive but helpful when needed. Appreciated small touches -Sunday Times delivery and complementary bottle of wine!!
