What a wonderfully welcoming property, the open fire was on when we arrived, lamps had been left on along with the radio to make the house seem more like a home, cold beer on arrival aswell as soft drink for the kids, and snacks. There were 8 of us all together and three young children, but the house was plenty big enough for all of us and then some! Table tennis table was a big hit. Bright was so beautiful during autumn with the leaves all the colours of the rainbow, don't think it's just a summer or winter destination!5/5 by ,
We are a group of 13 friends all 60 plus. We stayed at the Mad House for 6 nights & had an absolute ball. The best house in the best place. Highly recommend it, & nothing is too much trouble for the owners. Wheel chair friendly, pet friendly, we will definitely book again.5/5 by ,
Best in Bright....What a beautiful home,we stayed at this lovely house for 3 nights with 2 other families, we had an absolutely ball. Upon entering the home we were immediately impressed at how immaculate the house was,the home has everything you need and much more. The studio adjoining the home is fantastic our teenagers absolutely loved it. The grounds are beautifully maintained with lots of room for the kids to run around and play. Cheryl is an angel she was an absolute delight to speak to, she was extremely helpful in so many ways. I cannot put into words how wonderful this home is the internet pictures do not do the house and landscape justice at all. Will definately return. Thankyou so much cheryl for a wonderful stay5/5 by ,
A fantastic holiday home in a beautiful setting by the river. Not often do you find a holiday home spacious enough to easily accomodate 3 families in comfort and yet at the same time making you feel like you are in your own home. Inside and out, Mad on the River is a brilliant place to get away and relax with friends.5/5 by ,
