The cottage was clean, comfortable, well supplied, with lovely large towels and full DSTV menu - more than we expected. Our host, Richard was welcoming and extremely helpful with new contacts for all sorts of things as we have just relocated to the area.
We'll definitely recommend Leafy Lane to friends.

Stayed at Leafy Lane over a long weekend and was very impressed. The apartment was very comfortable and had all the necessary amenities. Hosts were welcoming and had the answers to any questions. The guesthouse is located off the main road, in a tranquil cul de sac but located within a 2 minute drive to shops and restaurants. Would highly recommend to anyone needing accommodation in Howick and will stay there again if I am in the area.

My wife and I think we have found THE place to stay in Howick on our frequent trips to the coast, on business.
The entire package was excellent and the hosts, Lynn and Richard are a lovely, dedicated and professional couple who provided one of the best breakfasts we have had for a very long time.' The bed was particularly comfortable and we slept really well; something that is not always automatic, sleeping in strange environments. We loved our stay, Thank you both.

Just TOO many pluses to mention. Richard and Lynn are a fantastic couple who provided EVERYTHING we wanted in our stay. Indeed, the bed was almost as good as the one at home, which means it was the best we have ever had on our travels.
The breakfast was truly a tasty treat, top class ingredients,perfectly cooked and served with toast and home made Marmalade. VERY good, certainly better than many restaurants and again, the best we have had in many years travel.
Thank you for the wonderful, warm welcome, the natural homeliness and great feeling that stayed with us long after we had left.

Howick is very limited in what it offers... best to drive out to spots in the surrounding Midlands areas...
