“Marizete is a lovely, thoughtful, fair and kind host and is responsive to requests/questions. She was helpful and flexible in extending our stay which was necessary due to Covid19 issues. The space is stylishly decorated and feels calm and quiet inside. The shower was very big and pleasant, and although the space can get cold quickly the heaters also heat it up fairly quickly. Marizete provides fresh towels and linens, and there is suitable crockery and cutlery available for use in kitchenette.. There is also private parking right in front available if needed, and a small private patio space outside the back of the guesthouse which is another bonus. One thing that was a bit unexpected for us is that there is no kitchen sink, which made washing up a challenge as the bathroom sink is tiny and the tap is very low, meaning you cannot fill the kettle directly from the tap. However there is a washing up bucket and a large beaker to use to fill the kettle provided. There is a fridge, microwave and toaster but no oven or hob, so cooking is limited however this was clear from the posting before we booked. It was just that the lack of kitchen sink/tap that was a surprise. Overall however the stay was very nice and I would definitely stay again and recommend it to others.”

“Charlotte's space is a perfect base from which to explore Gainsborough country. It's really secluded, yet within a short wal;k of a lovely pub. It's a combination of modern (kitchen fully equipped, lovely bathroom with huge bath and walk-in shower) and Georgian style living/bedroom. The bed is huge! Charlotte was really nice to welcome us, and the advice for things to do was very welcome. Sadly we couldn't enjoy the garden much, but the autumn leaves were a picture.”

“Jess’ place is not only true to the photos, I’d go as far as to say better! The accommodation itself was of an excellent standard, all the things you could want for are there, and the log burner is a real treat on a cold night, not to mention one of the comfiest beds I have ever slept in! Location is very secluded and quiet, can easily come and go as you please. Jess was always very quick to reply and made the whole experience stress free. Would recommended to anyone and will certainly stay again!”
