Worths/Dagnells/Garretts - West Yorkshire, 24th June-1st July 2022

Booked for a 70th birthday for Paul. Beautiful house with space for me time in lots of secret corners. Fantastic week and weather. Enjoyed the market town and all it had to offer lots of great walks. An afternoon or two of watching the cricket. Excellent base for touring. Father's Day at The Black Bull. All in all a fabulous holiday. OH to be highly recommended!

Gail & Paul, Claire & John, Lena & Keiran - Cheshire & Manchester, 17th-24th June 2022

The Orchard House provided a fantastic base for attending a wedding nearby and then enjoying what Richmond has to offer. Enjoyed and admired The Station - good beer and some great ice cream. Food, cinema and the walk to Easby all well worth doing. Had a great meal a The Fleexe (not too noisy for the aurally challenged!). A highlight for all ages was The Forbidden Corner, a bit of a drive, but a really extraordinary creation. Good weather and an equally warm welcome from Caroline. Thanks

Sam & Ali, Suzy & Iain, Henry & Claire, Charlotte & Freddie, Andrew & Liz - Oxford/Kingston & Epwatt, 10-17 June 2022

We've had a wonderful weekend break at Orchard House. We especially enjoyed the hot tub, we even braved it in the snow. We couldn't believe how close the house was to the centre of Richmond. We loved the walk to Hudswell and our pub lunch at the George & Dragon with the fab views (would recommend it). As well as eating out we enjoyed dining in at the cottage home made Sunday lunch followed by chocolate fondue. We weren't short of entertainment, we played many games of pool, Mario-kart and wii bowling! 11/10 loved it! Thank you.

She kept in touch to make sure we had everything, dropped a fires trick round for games tv and when we asked if she knew about anywhere local for us to take our son fishing, she went above and beyond and researched for us, texted a link to info and told us where we would purchase a river day ticket.
