“What a wonderful place for a gathering of old friends”

We rented Somerville for a few days as a group of seven, to celebrate 40 years of friendship. We all met in the autumn of 1974 when four of us were on a post-grad teacher training course at Edge Hill (now Edge Hill University).
The house was perfect for us - three comfortable double rooms and a single, huge kitchen/diner/tv room, two bathrooms plus a downstairs loo and a very elegant (and huge) sitting room, which we didn't even use as we were so comfortable in the kitchen.
Because Peter, the owner, lives here when he's not renting, it was beautifully equipped with absolutely everything we could possibly need - including a Rangemaster cooker.
Peter was a lovely host, with plenty of recommendations for where (and where not) to eat/drink/get fish and chips etc.
We couldn't have been happier with this house - delightful in every way.

“Fabulous House, we had a great stay !”

We stayed for 3 nights as a family of 3 adults and 2 children and had a marvellous time. The house is very spacious, clean and well equipped. It was warm and cosy and the beds were very comfortable.We loved the garden too, it was a pleasant surprise as there are no photos ! The house is immaculate and decorated beautifully. It is in a good location close to Lord Street and it is easy to access Liverpool too. The only thing we would improve is blackout curtains in the bedrooms as it was very light in there for both us and the children !!

We had a very friendly welcome from Peter, thank you for letting us stay in your lovely house, we hope to be able to come and stay again some time !!

“Perfect for family or group holiday.”

Excellent property. Well appointed. Two families stayed over Easter weekend. Ideal for visiting Southport and excellent link for train to Liverpool. We also had visiting relatives from Formby. Perfect for groups but would be equally nice for small party. Very spacious, lovely large bathrooms. We spent a lot if time in the open plan kitchen, dining/sitting area. The weather was kind and we also took advantage of the lovely garden and seating outside. Peter was a welcome host and communication was good!

“Great base for a great golf holiday!”

Rented Somerville for 5 nights with two friends and used it as a base to play a number of the area's world class links golf clubs...Somerville itself was wonderful - lots of room on the first floor, comfortable bedrooms upstairs, lovely garden, all new appliances, internet, etc. to make for a perfect stay. A short walk to a large selection of restaurants/pubs/etc. Easy to book and Peter was an ideal host.
