5/5 Excellent

Great short stay
Lisa was incredibly responsive with the multiple queries we had before booking. The property was in a nice area and exactly as described. It was a great base for our family to do what we wanted to do Would not hesitate to recommend this

5/5 Excellent

Very good.
It was just as it was advised and close to Stone centre. Lovely walks down the canal. Would recommend a stay for anyone. Thanks, Craig.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful home!
Pictures don't do property justice. Many rentals are kitted out very minimally but this was a true homely home ... everything you could have wanted was there. It was beautifully presented and immaculate. Location fab ... right by lovely canalside walks. Would highly recommend.

5/5 Excellent

Peace & Quiet.
As the home is described is how the home is. Delightful. Very convenient to make visits within Staffordshire, Derbyshire, Shropshire & Cheshire without even touching the motorway(M6). Although this is conveniently nearby if thats your road of choice. The local town still has much charm with local needs met in both shops & restaurants. The house is in a tranquil setting just steps away from the canal and lovely walks to enjoy the countryside and watch the barges going by at their steady pace. Overall the house is peaceful and cosy and was easy to relax in.. Owner quick to respond and would recommend as your place of stay if you are wishing to be around this area.

4/5 Good

Ideal Location for Exploring the Area
Lovely family home for a short break. The house is only about 30metres from the canal, which provides a lovely towpath walk along the canal into the centre of Stone. Chill out time watching the canal boats at the lock gates. The main purpose of our visit to the area was to visit Drayton Manor, Alton Towers and Monkey Forest, this property provided a good base for these. Visiting during Scarefest did mean that we had minimal time to enjoy the house as leaving Alton Towers after 9pm every night. The night that we did light the wood burner it did provide a lovely aroma in the house for a family movie night. Stone has some lovely restaurants, we enjoyed both tapas and Italian. The main street of the village is mainly charity shops though. Only shop on the doorstep is the local petrol station that sells essentials.
