Devon self catering cottage, England
Truly relaxing, very peaceful - we haven't slept so well in a very long time - great to slow down and soak up the beautiful countryside. Ian made us feel very welcome and the homemade cake was delicious. (more)Sue Cross-Bourton
Maggie and Ian are genuinely committed to minimal environmental impact tourism, and it shows everywhere you look .... They are welcoming, enthusiastic, and full of ideas for great days out and activities in the local area. (more)Julia Key
Very good. Great for families and for getting away from it all. It was all lovely and relaxing. Borrowing the bikes and cycling around the countryside was great fun! (more)bronwen burgess

Devon eco lodge accommodation, England
Maggie, joint owner with Ian, took us on a walk through the wet grassland area of special scientific interest. Not only was it interesting from an ecological point of view it was such fun. (more)Jenny Brace
We'll remember the brightness of the stars on clear nights with no light pollution, watching bats flying around our lodge at sunset, waking late because it was so quiet and comfortable and the blackout blinds were so good, the ruby red cows really glowing like rubies at sunset, being content to just potter around the farm in the sunshine without getting bored. (more)Sue Stanwell
The most memorable part were the ...scones on arrival (they were the best I have ever tasted!), walking around the beautiful country side and the farm... (more)Jenna du Plessis
From £250 - £595 per accommodation per week
Andalucia bed and breakfast near Ronda
We enjoyed every part of our holiday. The food was exceptional and the hotel could not be faulted in any way. We had two fantastic days out with Peter Jones a local bird expert who showed us all the wonderful birds and wildlife in the area. (more)Marina Harvey
Well we only spent a few days in Cartajima, but there were quite a few highlights. On our last day we went to the Alhambra in Granada, and there are no words to describe how fabulous this is. (more)Annette Kelly
Overall, this was a revelation for us all, that there is such a beautiful unspoilt place; that the people who have moved in there, to provide the holidays, have such regard and respect for the place and its people - that they share their love of the place so enthusiastically. (more)Aine Allen
From €125 per double room per night
Rural Crete holiday villa, Greece
Memorable parts? The drive to Panokosmos, once we had left the main autoroute was exciting. The road wound up into the hills and the last 200 yards the road was narrow and hair- raising but what a fantastic place to reach - brilliant hill top home with the most fantastic views. Looking out over the mountains and valleys each morning never ceased to impress us. Panokosmos is a place to escape to - to relax in and just 'unhook' yourself from the daily madness that could well be your daily existence.... (more)flis hughes
From €100 - €230 per accommodation per night
