Tenant & Guest Reviews


Our time in Ashton has been fantastic

Our time in Ashton has been fantastic and will be recalled with fond memories by us as time drifts on. Beehive Cottage was our first house together and those early days of our relationship and over the last ten years we have got engaged in Ashton, got married in the village, and bought our first child into the world.

I recall reading the first tenancy agreement we signed and noting a paragraph which requested that tennats make an effort in the local community. This is something that my wife and I have always tried to adhere to and we feel that we will truly be leaving a footprint in the village when we leave and I hope that it is regarded by all as a positive one.

Finally, I would like to thank you personally Charles for renting your property. You have always been a very fair Landlord and we will certainly miss our annual Christmas Card from you next year!

I enjoyed everything about Ashton

I wanted to thank you very much for having me as a tenant at the Gatehouse these past years. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in Ashton. I can’t praise your staff in the office, or “on the ground” high enough. They have always been there when needed and you can be proud of the work they do. All your staff have all been great, and I wanted to thank you personally.

I enjoyed everything about Ashton, from beating on the shoots, to going to the pub, and most importantly, the people I have met. I wish you and you family the very best in the future. I hope to visit Ashton in the future when I have too much time on my hands.

Magical Ashton Wold

Our family lived in the magical Ashton Wold for four years and we still consider it our home from home. We enjoyed the privacy and beauty of rural living in traditionally maintained countryside and woodland that also benefited from good transport links and a bustling town just two miles away. The friendly community however has to be the best part of living in Ashton; with regularly organised family events with the Chequered Skipper being the epicentre of all entertainment, the best part being of course a stroll home instead of an elusive and extortionate taxi!

Our children, five and six remember the wildlife most of all. Deer, monkjack, rabbits, pheasants, bees, red kites, owls, bats; all of which had been seen in the garden (or house!) at one time or another. An education that you just can’t buy anywhere else! I particularly miss being able to run from my front door through woodland and back roads without seeing a car for miles, much cheaper than joining a gym. We hope one day to return…

The best country escape ever

The best country escape EVER – the three units are all fantastic and the piece and quiet of the area is just superb. The whole family loved the holiday on the estate. Carol and her team do a great job managing the place!!!!

Highly recommend The Lady Rothschild Diary

We were so lucky to find this beautiful country retreat for our wedding celebrations. First off, the property is within private land, and feel very safe to jog around and see the beautiful surroundings. We have a 3 years old daughter, and the courtyard has gate where you can close it up, so you are never too worried your child playing outside and wandered off into the woods. The property itself is very well maintained, beautifully curated, and with high quality standard of living. We rented The Constable, all the rooms are very spacious and beautifully dressed. Every corner of the house is very clean, and it really is a home outside home.

And what a bonus that almost every corner of the house is perfect for our wedding photos!! It’s god sent we were also able to hire a private caterer (Beetroot Catering), recommended by Carol for both our wedding reception and wedding breakfast. The food was so beautifully cooked, and everyone enjoyed both the surroundings and food so much! There’s none other private dining experience can compare to such as this one! In my opinion, it beats a wedding at a hotel, and we were so happy we did it this way, both private and the high quality of dining still maintained!

Carol and April have been giving us a lot of help to make sure our stay was a happy and memorable one. We even received a card and a bottle of procesco for our wedding day, so thoughtful! Both the ladies are just so easy to talk to, and it seems nothing is ever too troubled, and making us all felt very welcomed!

We highly recommended The Lady Rothschild Diary, and will definitely be coming back again!!! Thanks again!
