The Kirkwood family, Cheltenham, April 2021
"Such a lovely house. Really spacious and well equipped with a beautiful garden, while also being very cosy. We ended up spending a month here between moving house during lockdown. Nikki was fantastic - so helpful, very communicative and accommodating. It’s set in a beautiful, peaceful village, right next to a park with amazing views. Park House was a lovely, peaceful haven for us and our children and I’d highly recommend it."
