Spot on
Exactly as the other reviews describe. Really tidy and pristine, safe for well behaved kids but still a gorgeous couples getaway too. Tried the hot tubs 'full works', but in the end we turned the Jets and lights off and just chilled to the sounds of the stream under a clear starry night. Lovely walks, top Chinese takeaway delivery and perfect setting.

Picture Perfect
Me and my partner stayed here for a weekend recently, it is the most peaceful and picturesque place for a couples retreat. On arrival we were welcomed with a bottle of prosecco, which was a lovely surprise. Squirrels Leap is like a home from home and the pictures dont do it justice. We would highly reccomend this special place to everyone.

Very well done conversion
This is a really well done conversion and the photos don't do it justice. We were met by the owner on arrival and got a tour of the property, explaining how things worked. They had obviously spent a lot of time making this place look and feel cottagey but contemporary and it works. What make it even more special are the personal touches fresh flowers and a home made cake, really impressed us. The drive in felt a bit built up but the location couldn't be more rural. The view from the hot tub is nothing but trees, fields, open skys and the odd sheep. We would highly recommend this place and would like to thank the owners for making us feel really welcome and hope they have many more very happy customers.

Just Amazing
Absolutely amazing will definitely be returning!! So clean couldn?t fault anything, lovely welcome hamper, which included tasty local breads and guide to the holiday home and area. Everything you need is already supplied! Deco is beautiful with lovely added details, I would say a home away from home but it's so much nicer than that! Definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to get away to the country. Will be returning with our daughter as the place is very child friendly with a high chair and games and books. Thank you for a lovely weekend me and my partner had the best time relaxing :)

Stunning Location
We were the first guests to stay at Squirrels Leap, we were greeted by Adele and Roy, the owners, who are really lovely, We didn?t know we were the first guests, so we felt very fortunate to be the very first ones to stay. Roy came up with us, and explained the heating, then left us to settle in. We have to say that the place is stunning, and finished to high standard. We had a welcome basket with Prosecco and coffee, beer and biscuits, the fridge had milk, and a few extra bits in, which we really appreciated. The view is great, to see the sheep and baby lambs everyday, all the birds and the brook is right next to the property. Our first nights sleep was amazing, the bed was super comfortable, which I feel is important when your away from home. The property and location is stunning, and the location which is great if you want peace and quiet, long walks, and just to chill. We will definitely be back, as it was perfect for our needs.
