Dragonfly was excellent.

Alison Roberts

'I have just returned from a delightful stay in one of your houses – Dragonfly in Docking. We have had 4 nights there and would have loved at least 4 more had they been available to us! The house was just delightful. How nice to stay somewhere which has had every detail well thought through. The standard was high and much appreciated. The bedrooms reminded me of a White Company advertisement! Perfect in every way. To have so much crockery and cutlery was excellent. The main living room was comfortable and easy and, on the first night which was chilly, we managed to have a lovely fire. I have brought back the details and recommended you to our friends for another year – you are booked for this one! Pixie, our spaniel, loved it too and as we had her crate with us, she was happy and felt safe at night and when we went out to Twenty9 for dinner and left her there in it. Everything was easy – and having had a fairly difficult time after the surgery on my hip – I was really grateful


'Thank you! We have very much enjoyed ourselves. A lovely house to stay in.'
