  • I would like to take this opportunity in congratulating you on owning a lovely bungalow. Myself, husband, Mum and two dogs stayed at Holme Lea on the 10th-17th July and found it very comfortable and well equipped. Having breakfast in the conservatory was a lovely experience in the morning sun wth the birds singing. Your lady neighbour with the westie was very pleasant as were the ladies in the village shop. We enjoyed our local walks together with the varies places we visited by car. We would like to book with you again in the future.

    Mr and Mrs Woodruff
