Great Reviews


The house setting is superb, very peaceful with lovely views and a feeling of total tranquility. The property is immaculately and thoughtfully presented and very well equipped. Lindsay and Tim were exceptional hosts and have clearly put a lot of love and hard work into the whole enterprise. They went out of their way to make ours and our 3 young children’s stay super relaxed, happy and memorable. The pool was a great temperature and pristine, with a stunning patio- a real highlight. Thanks again.We would definitely go back!

The photos really do not do House in The Field justice. It is a beautifully restored, furnished and equipped to the highest standard. We have stayed in a lot of different high standard holiday rentals and this one is up there with the best. Lindsay and Tim really all such wonderful hosts and have thought of absolutely everything you will need, even down to the birthday candles for celebrations. The best bit about this house is the beautiful pool surrounded by lovely marble outdoor living area, shaded wood verandah, comfy sofas, massive oak table and BBQ. Lovely! We would love to return soon

We have just returned from a blissful two weeks at the House-in-a-Field. Frankly I’m not sure how I agreed to leave! This was a peaceful, rural gem. 20-30 mins to several beautiful medieval towns and chateaus. The day and night markets were lively and abundant. Canoeing down the Dordogne river (Roque-Gageac 1 hr away, stunning drive) was brilliant. My husband and teenage son loved teleski/wakeboarding on wires (1 hr away) 

I opted for paddle boarding .The sunsets from the pool are magnificent and watching lightening storms from the oak porch was cosy and romantic. This house is stunning!

 House in the Field provided the perfect situation for us to relax together as a family. The beautifully restored house, with idyllic verandah looking onto the glorious pool, was the perfect antidote to stressful lives in the big city. Our hosts, Lindsay and Tim were charming - discreet but always ready to help when needed and utterly charming. And we loved the company of their dogs, Finn and Dave, who kept a respectful distance at all times. We are hoping they will remember us next year (we have booked to return for 2 weeks in 2020) when they might come a little closer!

Our stay was everything and more than hoped for. Lindsay and Tim are the most welcoming of hosts and the house was amazing, spotless, well provisioned, and comfortable. The crowning glory is the outside space with far reaching views. A very generous hamper welcomed us on arrival, and Lindsay and Tim were on hand to offer assistance and recommendations. This is by far the best accommodation we have stayed at in France. Fearing everyone who stays will want to return, we have already booked for next year! Thank you, Lindsay and Tim, for sharing your little slice of heaven.

What a fabulous place! The location is so tranquil; truly a place to completely unwind. A morning swim in the pool followed by a leisurely breakfast on the deck was the perfect way to start the day. The house is very tastefully decorated and the bed was super-comfy. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything you could need, just like home, which isn’t always the case in a holiday rental. Thank you Lindsay and Tim, you couldn’t have made us more welcome. We definitely plan to return!

My Husband and I and our baby have just got back from a week’s stay at House in the field. We had an amazing time! The house is absolutely perfect, beautifully decorated and situated in gorgeous countryside. The veranda and pool area are the most perfect places to relax. There are also some gorgeous towns and villages nearby if you fancy exploring. Can’t wait to go back!
