"Perfect stag trip weekend. Our stay at Kingsley Lake View was perfect. Excellent location overlooking the lake and only 20 minutes from Bristol, great facilities (hot tub, pool table, badminton), and good communication with Staycation Holidays. The beds were comfortable and the living areas were clean and well-equipped. I heard from a couple of the guys that the shower closest to the front door was either too hot or too cold and they had to use the other two showers, but this was our only issue. All in all, a memorable stay and a perfect location for a stag do."

The kitchen area is superb and has everything you could possibly need, there was 14 of us and the space was just perfect. Being so remote was a must for us, being a hen do!! The sound system was great and with the outdoor speakers it was a party house with no neighbours to worry about! I didn't meet the host (did have some text conversations) but did meet her friend who was lovely. The rooms were spacious and the beds were super comfy. Would highly recommend this house and also would love to come back. Thank you."

The property was easy to book and Charles was very quick at replying to any emails or calls. The only very small issue we had was an ants nest in one of the bedrooms but Rebecca let us know how to sort this.Thank-you for a lovely stay, I would highly recommend and would definitely use the company and property again."

Staycation Holidays helped me book the perfect property for a group of 15, they were very clear on all the details of their properties and proactively flagged these details to make sure they were appropriate for us. Charles and Lin at Staycation Holidays were very responsive and made the booking process quick and easy. The housekeeper took the time to make sure we knew exactly how everything worked and that we had everything we needed for the stay, she's also available any time if there are any issues. "

Prior to arrival we had a detailed description of the property including local restaurants, walks and in house catering details. The property was fabulous for our weekend and the views breath taking!
