  • I emailed you to say how much we all enjoyed the property Deer How which we rented from the 25th May to 1st June and I also completed a survey e mailed to me. Everyone in our family party from the youngest to the oldest all agreed we would love to return next year for the same week, which is the school half term holiday. Sincerely, Anne Crawford
