Bond Issue
House is good, pool and hot tub are great. As mentioned in previous reviews, we also had issues with our security bond. We were sent photos of linen prior to being washed and were told we were being charged ?50 for stains that would not come out despite not yet being washed. When we questioned this, we were also accused of smashing a glass and leaving glass in the living area (not likely as we had 3 babies crawling around). Some linen photos we were sent were barely marked, perhaps a tiny smudge from sleeping. There are passive aggressive notes all over the house. I would not recommend staying here to anyone unless you?re happy to part with your bond money.

An excellent venue for a large get together
We had a lovely family get together at Treetops. It is situated in a lovely area with plenty to do. We had a lovely walk along the canal and then down to the pub for a bar meal. The house itself is ideal for a large family gathering. It is very well equipped with a large kitchen with all the necessary equipment. There are two large dining tables,one for the adults and one for the children. The bedrooms are light and airy and everywhere is nice and clean. The children especially loved the swimming pool and the adults thought the hot tub was fantastic. A lovely place to stay.We hope to return in the near future. S

A great house for a family gathering, caters for all generations!
We had a lovely long weekend at Treetops for a family gathering. There is plenty of space for everyone to be together in the kitchen / dining area, but also for people to have peace and quiet if required in other parts of the house. We made full use of the swimming pool and hot tub, despite the December weather! The view from the hot tub over the village and valley below is delightful. We had a couple of nice walks from the house into the village and along the canal and cycle path.

Perfect choice!
I stayed at Treetops for a long weekend for my hen party with 14 other ladies! The house, location, pool and hot tub were all amazing! The house was clean and tidy when we arrived with everything we needed to make our stay super easy. We cooked 2 nights in the ample size kitchen.. and there was plenty of cutlery, plates etc. And having a dishwasher helped a lot too! There's also a number of takeaways who deliver which we used on night 3. For me the best thing about this house is the size.. there's some great communal areas in the lounge and kitchen .. but also so cosy areas where you can get away and relax! Perfect for any group! I now need an excuse to come back!!

Wonderful cottage,
Had a fantastic time here, very much child friendly, all precautions have been taken to ensure the children come to no harm, made the stay more enjoyable & relaxing not having to worry to much about the children hurting themselves. Cottage was fully equipped for all your needs. Local pub meals where faultless, for us all 16 of us, local place to visit has got to be the Big pit, & very moving. ( & it's free to get in ) & a cheese shop in the same town, Over all you won't be disappointed. Many thanks to Lisa, & Anthony Hicks.
