Here is what one client had to say:

Decisions Decisions …. An end of season break in the Med’ or the Autumnal delights of the UK?
We are so glad to have chosen the delightfully decorated and cosy Squirrel Hill Cottage – where everything exudes luxury, yet with a country air. We love Yorkshire and it hasn’t disappointed. We enjoyed a trip to the dales and Aysgarth Falls and a wonderful meal at the Angel at Hetton, a visit to the National Film Museum and our first 3D film

Tomorrow we visit to Harwood house with friends. What a lovely relaxing time…..I even woke up to see three deer from my bedroom window on the first day.….wonderful!
