following their stay at Bury Tower House

"Thank you for returning the deposit so promptly. Many thanks for arranging Bury Tower House for us. It was very comfortable and provided exactly the sort of accommodation we required. With a range of ages among the family we found there was a place for all. Some completed a 1,000 piece jigsaw (one piece missing)  others were able to complete uni projects, some of us just read or watched T.V.  We all walked on the beach each day, and explored the ancient dockside and went aboard Warrier and Victory, so you can see that apart from celebrating an 80th birthday and Christmas we had a great week. I shall certainly get in touch with you again."
Elva Miller, Christmas 2011

"We all had a wonderful time at Bury Tower House and would definitely consider booking again for the next family event! It was great to find such a lovely house."
Rosalind MacIver, October 2011

"Just a note to say many thanks for all your hard work. We had the best time at the weekend & everything worked out perfectly. The house is a beaut & everyone fell in love with it. Little Harry (7) wanted to move in there with us all, bless him, he loved the tower room!! Please pass thanks on to Kate & Sandy. Look forward to using Harrington homes again one day!"
Alison Welsh, Sep 2011

"Thank you for all of your help with our stay at Bury Tower.  Everything was fantastic but the most brilliant thing was the directions! Whoever wrote those deserves a star badge!"
Sarah McCarthy, Sep 2011

"Thanks for returning the deposit so promptly.  We all had a wonderful time during our weekend away, the house had all the amenities we needed and many spacious and very comfortable bedrooms.  The kitchen/dining area was fantastic and it was lovely to have 2 different seating areas for tvs, especially with so many children at the house!. Many thanks again for such a lovely break."

"I thought I must email to advise the owners of Bury Tower what a lovely break we had there. The house is beautiful and furnished to a very high standard. We absolutely loved it, especially the touch of chocolates and flowers."
Alison Brixton, July 2011

"One word would say it all 'Outstanding'!  We had such a great time, the house is simply beautiful with so much thought gone into everything, we could not have asked for more, we were all quite blown away whilst being shown around. There was not one thing we could have wanted that wasnt there, nice surprise of fresh flowers and chocolates left by the owner, which was a really lovely thought, thank you! From the start of my first enquiry right up to us being home with many happy memories, Harrington Homes service was incredible, such helpful friendly people.  Saturday night in Portsmouth Gunwharf Quays was great fun and was helped by the excellent mini bus service we recieved from recommended C&R Travel, great guy, he got us there and back safely with very a respectable price. Would also highly recommend Renee Coombs Beauty she is so lovely, friendly, chatty and professional and simply brought our weekend to a very relaxing end with mini treatments on offer Sunday morning. We will all remember my 40th weekend for many many years and we are already trying to sort a date for a re-union party re-visit next year! Thank you Fiona for everything Harrington Homes did for us to make the weekend so special and memorable, I will be highly recommending you to everyone."
Shelley Smith, June 2011

"We loved the little touches of flowers and muffins left for us. Had not appreciated in advance how welcoming and nicely presented the house would be. A very positive experience and the bride to be loved the Rib Ride!"
Diane Fowler, May 2011

"Our party of 16 had a fantastic time at Bury Tower House in December for our annual pre Christmas gathering. The property had all the facilities required to make it enjoyable stay, and the christmas decorations and log fire made it feel very festive. The children particularly liked the tower room, which they turned into a Christmas grotto!"

"My family and I have just returned from a fantastic week away at Bury Tower House. We had a brilliant week filled with loads of fun. The house was absolutely perfect for our large party of four families consisting of 8 adults and 5 chidlren, there was plenty of space for everyone to relax and chill out. I would highly recommend the house to any large party as we could not fault it at all. The kitchen was well stocked with plenty of plates, glassware and cutlery and the open plan dining room was perfect for a crown of our size. The treats provided by Sandy on our arrival were also very welcome. The only small and minor suggestion would be the addition of a Freeview box so that the little ones had access to Cbeebies."
Jodie Raitt, August 2011

"We all very much enjoyed our Christmas at Bury Tower House and there is no doubt that it has been recorded as “One of the Best” on our list of Christmas holidays. It makes an excellent base for a family get together. The layout works exceedingly well - the double aspect dining room adjacent to the kitchen, the inclusion of a proper sitting area in the dining room plus the separate living room, means that everybody was able to feel part of the fun. In the summer I would imagine the direct garden access from the living and dining rooms would be an added bonus. A big thank you to Alex & Kate (the arrival gifts were especially thoughtful) and of course we need to thank Harrington Homes for the professional manner in which all aspects of our holiday booking were dealt with."
Peter Herring, December 2010

"Many thanks for the prompt repayment of the deposit, and of course for all your help in arranging our very successful 70th birthday celebration weekend, my mother had a wonderful time, as indeed did we all! The weather was not our side unfortunately, but thank goodness the covered area over the decking at the house allowed us to still have our BBQ for 25 people. The house was lovely and absolutely perfect for our party size. My nautical relatives were very impressed by all the amazing yachting photos too."
Belinda Exelby, August 2010

"The golf club had a most successful tour, due in no small part to the terrific accommodation. General consensus was that we would all like to do it again next year, so we'll be in touch. Thanks again for all your help."

"Thanks for the swift refund of the deposit. We all had a lovely time, the property was super and very well presented, and the rooms large and airy. We appreciated the prompt response of the owner when we ran out of gas mid barbeque on Sunday night!"
Dr Nicola Keay, July 2010

"Thank you for all your arrangements for our week away everything went smoothly and we had a wonderful time. The house was in a very lovely condition."
Alison King, May & June 2010

"The hot tub (optional extra) was certainly worth all the efforts. We really enjoyed it. It was filled with hot water when we arrived so we were able to 'jump' in after we settled in. We had a wonderful time. The beds were nice (new bed linen obviously fab) and everything was clean and tidy. We all would love to return to the house."
Mar Out, Hen Weekend April 2010

"Thanks for arranging our stay at Bury Tower, we all had a very good time. I'm very impressed with the service you offer, we have had quite a few similar holidays over the last few years, but never had anyone check everything ok, or make themselves so available for help. It is much appreciated and I'd have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone else."
Simon Dorset, Easter 2010

"Thank you for refunding the deposit. We had great time. The house was lovely and very quiet. Our 6 children loved the "secret room" and spent a lot of time having very important meetings up there! Wonderful and the showers were excellent!"
Gillian Gill, April 2010

"I'm happy to say that we had a wonderful time at Bury Tower House. It was all that we expected and we appreciated the warm welcome we were given on arrival. We would gladly recommend you to any friends who might be thinking of staying in your area in the future. We were most impressed by the thoughtful and caring way Harringtons dealt with our booking."
Mark Wavell, New Year 2009/10

"We had a brilliant time, thank you. The house and situation was ideal and we all enjoyed our week very much. It was definitely the right idea. There was nothing about the house that we could fault at all, it is so well equipped but my Mum did suggest that we could do with a small saucepan/milk pan. My thanks again for your help."
Lindsay Brindle, Christmas 2009

"It was a lovely house and a fabulous wedding. A wonderful weekend all round. The house was very well equipped and very comfortable. Your directions were very clear and easy to follow. Many thanks for all your help over the last few weeks and we would be happy to recommend your company and the property."
Liz Porter, September 2009

"We all had a lovely weekend and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Bury Tower House is lovely and an excellent base for the area. I would recommend it to anyone. The house is spacious and well equipped with ample parking and a lovely garden. The fruit, chocolates and wine were a thoughtful touch. Thank you for all your help in the organisation of my weekend."
Helen Richardson, July 2009

"We had a lovely time - the house was great for all the family and the weather really was perfect - very lucky! One of my sisters is talking about hiring it again in the coming months."
Anita Shaw, May 2009

"All I can say is that it was a wonderful weekend in a lovely house and it all went so well. I wish we could have stayed longer. I really appreciated the beautiful bouquet of flowers, basket of fruit and celebration chocolates. I felt like a queen and as it was my birthday those touches made all the difference. Thank you again for all your help."
Audrey Lelliott, May 2009

"Excellent. Wouldn't hesitate to book again, the accommodation was wonderful and the spacious off road parking was most welcome with all the cars in our party. Very comfortable."
Lynette Baxter, October 2008

"The house was just what we were after and very handy for Portsmouth."
Scott and Emma Waldegrave, August 2008

"Fantastic accommodation, everything was great, service was wonderful, beautiful house."
