"We had a wonderful time at the house which was most suitable, especially for my elderly father who was able to enjoy the stay very much; the downstairs bedroom and bathroom were ideal, thank you for your help in identifying the house for us. Everything worked very well, the beds were extremely comfortable, the house warm and well appointed."Patterson family
"We much enjoyed our stay. Described by one guest as ‘home from home’. The house was very clean and organised when we arrived, and everything we could need was there. We hope to book again. Please pass on our thanks to those involved."Mr Campbell & friends
"My family and I had a wonderful stay at St. Cuthbert’s over the Easter weekend. It was exactly what we were hoping for and in fact it exceeded our expectations!"Menon family
"Just wanted to say that we were very happy with the property particularly its peaceful location, by the end of the week, we wanted to buy the dilapidated chapel at the end of the field so we could stay! Our children were very pleased when they discovered there was wifi at the property! Staff at Crabtree & Crabtree were efficient in booking the place for us in friendly manner."Laverick family
"It was an amazing house with lots to offer and I can't wait to return! Everything in the kitchen we could have wanted and a beautiful location with loads of good places to eat and drink nearby. Thank you very much. We'll be back!"Ward family
"I think we all felt the same as soon as we walked into SCF, that it would be one of our favourites and we had only been there a few days when we all agreed that this was the best property in which we had stayed. We loved the kitchen, very spacious and well-equipped with a terrific view of some lovely sunrises. It was also comfortable and spacious enough to use for our less formal meals. Having an efficient range in good working order is not something we have always enjoyed. The lounge was comfortable, with space for everybody to sit but also with space for others to do jigsaws. The fire was very good. The dining room was a perfect setting for our more formal dinners. Having the boot room, utility room and outside storage area with fridge and freezer just made the whole property seem so much more spacious. The bedrooms were lovely, very spacious and comfortable and having so many bathrooms really does make a difference. A real plus was having such good quality bath towels provided, large and soft, not always the case in our experience. The property was really warm and there was always hot water, again not always the case, particularly in larger and older properties. A nice touch was the tasteful way that the property had been decorated for the festive period. Just to complete our experience of the property, we were treated to a blanket of stars like none of us had ever seen before on New Year’s Eve. Despite the freezing temperature we had our midnight champagne outside!"Scholey Family
