Maxwelton is a delightful property with stunning views across to Wales. It is extremely well-equipped with everything we needed for our short break in January. The dog towels were very useful indeed as was the delicious home- made cake on arrival. The garden is fully enclosed, which our dog Charlie loved running around. We were plenty warm enough and made...

Management response:

We are delighted you enjoyed your January mid-week escape and hope to welcome you back to stay with us again before too long. It is a beautiful drive to Heddon's Mouth, I hope you were able to incorporate seeing the spectacular Valley of the Rocks with its wild goats en route and Woody Bay.

It's warm, very clean and the welcome cake is an extra bonus. The area is great for long and short walks and this time we...

We were delighted to be able to make a return visit to the house for five days over New Year and again we recommend it highly - thank you for a lovely stay. The house is beautifully maintained, comfortable, warm, welcoming and large enough to accommodate six adults with ease. We did several walks from the door and enjoyed Dunster...

Happy New Year! Thank you very much for sparing the time to write such an extensive review, it is much appreciated.
