This was a great location in Edinburgh to use as a base for a vacation and for family visits. The house is very comfortable, well equipped and is located beautifully to get wherever you need to go whether it be on foot or by bus or whatever. We were made to feel welcome immediately and that just set the tone for a terrific visit to Edinburgh in general and Stockbridge in particular. The electronic information guide that was provided when the booking was completed was absolutely first class and very, very helpful. This is a great property.
Sarah and Gary were the perfect hosts, very laid back, didn't interfere at all and were incredibly helpful when called upon. The house itself was undescribable, in a good way. So many interesting rooms, each with it's own unique theme or character. We had planned to leave and go off and do other things at some point over the weekend that we stayed, but there was enough to keep us occupied (pool, table tennis, croquet, trampoline etc.) that we ended up only leaving to restock from the small shop nearby. Top marks all round, no complaints whatsoever.
we were a group of 28 ladies celebrating some big birthdays with 0's in them. We had an amazing time, the photos actually don't do justice to the venue and the house. Everything is there for you, nothing missing. We could not fault a thing.
I would highly recommend this property for your stay in Bournemouth, location was fab, the house spacious, clean, everyone had their own room of which all was comfortable and homely. The host Steph was accommodating and understanding. Great stay perfect for a weekend away with friends. I would book this property again. House Parties also have been accommodating and easy to use. Thank you.
This property is in an ideal walking location for Edinburgh centre and two minutes walk from a small Sainsburys and Tescos. The house is very comfortable and clean with little extras supplied like tea and coffee. There are two lovely bathrooms, and a warm and cosy living area and kitchen with mod cons.
With two kids, we had a fab time in Edinburgh during the Fringes Festival during early August 2016. The bedrooms are nice. All bathroom and kitchen appliances worked well. We appreciated the cleanliness which is not a given in our experience. Thanks to the location, it was quiet and still close enough to the bus lines as well as groceries and dining places. Thanks also to the welcoming and help host.
Had a wonderful stay with all our friends. Everything we needed and more. Michelle was very helpful and friendly. The hot tubs were amazing and the views stunning. Highly recommended.
Everything about this break was perfect. The location is stunning, as is the general condition of the house. We were blown away by the size of the place - so many magnificent rooms with so much space that our party of 19 never felt like we were getting in each other's way. There was a lovely, cozy TV room, as well as two other very large spaces to play board games, etc. The swimming pool was excellent too. The standard of furnishing, as well as the quality of the appliances, etc. was very impressive for a self-catering property. We are already planning our next trip.
Comfortable beds, spacious living areas, lots of luxurious touches, excellent location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here...
We have had an amazing weekend full of giggles with friends. It was perfect for us!! Thank you! X
The Drury is simply amazing! We spent my sister’s hen weekend in Oban and stayed from 2 nights. The House was absolutely beautiful and very cosy and became our home away from home for the weekend. The booking process was very easy and we were given all the information we needed prior to our arrival. We were met at the property by Gregor who was very friendly and welcoming and showed us everything we needed to know about the house, he reassured us that he was just at the other end of the phone should we need any assistance. The Drury sits on top of a hill, 5-10 minutes walk from Oban’s main str...more
First class customer service from the moment we first enquired, through booking and questions about our stay, right up until our welcome upon arrival. Facilities: house was beautiful, excellently finished with good size and nicely done rooms. The garden was spacious, well kept and with our amazing weather was an absolute treat. The wifi was dodgy at times which did have an effect when trying to play our music through the speakers but was to be expected in the rural setting. We made full use of the hot tub and this was the real treat throughout the stay! All in all an excellent experience wo...more
My six year old grandson's first comment was "wow, this is awesome ", and we all agreed. A lovely house, all bedrooms en suite. Perfect for a large group.
We were unsure of what to expect as photos can flatter places, but Blaven was everything it promised and more. Even with 11 adults over three generations, there was space and comfort and privacy for everyone. All the bedrooms and beds were comfortable and the main en suite was stunning. The kitchen was exceptionally well equipped and the Nespresso machine was much appreciated. We loved the convenience of the two utility rooms. I had thought such a big house might be cold but it was cosy from the minute we arrived. The log fire was a bonus. Great birthday holiday! Would definitely recomm...more
Perfect place to hold a hen weekend or even a weekend away with family, I would definitely recommend this to others. It really is as beautiful as it looks in the pictures. The train line is very close (as we were already advised) but it really wasn't an issue as you just get used too it and it is literally for a matter of seconds. All the rooms were perfectly presented and I will definitely keep in mind for other get togethers
Comfortable, clean, short walk from the centre (no need for a car). Lovely balcony, fully equipped with all that you need. Great place to stay with lots of friends - Thank you!
We stayed here for a Hen party, 21 girls ranging from ages 27- 60. I can tell you one thing the photo's of this house do not do it justice!!! Every room is absolutely stunning with tonnes of character and some of the views are to die for! It also has a disco dining room and cinema screen in the living room - need I say more? The mansion/castle house catered to all of our needs whilst we celebrated my best friends Hen, over a long weekend. Can't recommend the house enough! x
What an amazing and lovely house, with the kitchen definitely being the high point with wonderful views out across the river. The downside of course is the access which is a bit tricky and interesting, either along the beach (walking or in the car) or along the top path which is not great. All in all, not an access for the infirm or anyone not fairly sure-footed. We did manage to get two of our three cars along the beach under the pontoon including an Audi Q5 but not a Ford Ranger twincab truck. We had lovely weather and didn't need the heating but I'm not sure it was working properly - th...more
Great location just a few minutes walk to the minster and the city of York centre. Large beautifully clean holiday home with everything you need to make a perfect stay away from home. Highly recommended at a good price. This was our 4 year with this company.
We had an amazing 3 night stay. Lots of space in the house. Beautiful rooms! Hot tub and pool brill!
The house is amazing and the location the best in Elie! The beds are extremely comfortable and the decoration and facilities excellent. You will not be disappointed! Wish we could have stayed longer and we were also lucky with great weather! Would love to go back in the summer so can use the garden.
The house itself is lovely and we enjoyed the space and facilities such as the hot tub and games room. The rooms were nicely decorated and spacious, the kitchen well-equipped. We also appreciated the gesture of the complimentary Prosecco. However I have scored 'OK' rather than good or excellent on account of a number of niggles, as follows: Firstly the bathrooms were only patchily equipped with toilet rolls and soap so upon arrival we had to go out and purchase these items - which we had anticipated would be provided as standard in a property of this calibre - ourselves. Overall the clean...more
Very spacious accommodation very close to the city centre. Could do with touching up in a few areas but was ideal for what we all needed. Lovely garden and excellent bedrooms. Slightly difficult to sleep due to hearing traffic noises outside. A great little gem close to the centre of York, an excellent find. Only other negative would be the driveway is very very narrow and we struggled getting 3 cars on the driveway. The owners and. Are takers were lovely and accommodating. I would definitely go again.
