We just wanted to say what a fantastic time we had. The chalet was fabulous and your hospitality was most appreciated. Myself and                the kids were slightly besotted with the calves and by the time we            left we had named the vast majority. I don’t think I would make a         great farmer!        We really weren’t ready to come home and are        looking to staying with you another time.                                                                                                                                                          Thanks very much                                                                                                                                                                                        Lynn Gurney                                                                                                                                                                                              August 2015

Dear Christina,

Many thanks for your prompt refund of the damage deposit.

We very much enjoyed our stay once again and I am sure we will be re-visiting your accommodation some time – hopefully in the not too distant future!

Everything about what you offer was just perfect for us, and your games room is a real bonus, particularly for our grandchildren! We adults had a great time in there too!

You really do have a wonderful place and the views from your land are spectacular – which I am sure you must appreciate when you find time between running your dairy farm and the holiday accommodation.

Kind regards and best wishes.

We’ve had one of the best weeks we can remember! Lovely countryside and a very comfortable house for the week. Will certainly return next year!

Dear Chris & Martin,
Just a quick email to say a big thank you for our recent stay.

We had a great time.

The Duncliffe Chalet was exceptional, as all your Chalets appear to be. Your hospitality was fantastic and it was a good break for us.Ideally situated for lots of wonderful places to visit.  The kids really appreciated you fetching them over to see the two newborn calves.The blog you have done on them is a nice touch too, hope they are doing well.

Best Regards Dean, Samatha                                                                                                                                                                                                                          August 2010 – Duncliffe Chalet

Dear Chris

Thank you so very much for making my birthday weekend so enjoyable. It was an absolute pleasure to stay at the ‘Melbury’ this spring and my family and me look forward to visiting you again in the future. It was the ideal relaxing get away from the city! Thank you once again for providing such a well equipped chalet and such a warm welcome.

1st class chalet. Love the cows in the morning. Very peaceful

Steve, Aneta, Kate, Oliver & Emily    April 2012 – Melbury

We’ve had a lovely week in this great chalet despite the weather! Really peaceful, plenty of room for the kids and the hot tub is a real bonus. Both kids loved seeing the cows. Thanks.

Dear Chris & Martin

Many thanks for the wonderful setting for our holiday! The lodge as always clean, tidy. I could honestly live in one.  The sun eventually came out to play but on saying that the rain never stopped us visiting many old places. We had a few trips down memory lane. Hope to see you next year, all 3 of us.
