Go down a winding lane for the total peace and quiet of Gilly Parva in Constable country, a lovely timber-clad house with every convenience, overlooking a lake. Enjoy the wisteria-clad terrace and stroll up to the village with its fab gastro-pub.

I hope he has made the necessary improvements to make the place habitable and has learned to respect tennants´privacy
Response from Martin:
This is a difficult and demanding Spanish lady. We ended on the best of terms and I am surprised that she should now make these unpleasant and exaggerated comments. I admit that the condition and cleanliness of the house on her arrival were not up to the highest standards - something which has now been put right. She has failed to mention the fact that, in response to her demands on arrival, I spent towards £90 of my own money on additional kitchen equipment and a new shower curtain. I also exchanged the DVD with the better one I had in this house, at some sacrifice to myself. On the initial check-in arrangements, things did not seem to go wrong to me; her inadequate English must have been to blame. She was paranoid about privacy - unlike any of my previous tenants. Perhaps things are different in Spain. As a postscript, I should add that my housekeeper gave her considerable (and free) weekly help over getting her washing dried in our tumble-drier.
What an amazing place to stay. The location was fantastic and we enjoyed ourselves very much. Martin was a great host and welcomed us kindly. We will definitely be staying again.
We enjoyed out stay at Martin's. He is a very nice and accommodating person. The house is small but was perfect for us. The garden is gorgeous. The village is close, just a 10 minute walk in the woods and through walking paths. Ideal for escaping the chaos of the city. Car is man…
Retired sportsman and former diplomat. I love people and reading and Gilly Parva is full of books and pictures relating to my diplomatic past. I'm also a keen cook. My life motto is "Work Hard and Play Hard" I speak English, plus some French and Persian (Farsi)
