A home from home. This property caters for everyone. Great facilities - plenty of cooking equipment (including a crepe maker!), children ( stair gates, high chair, games), hot tub, games tables. Living room is perfect in the evening with a roaring fire. Cannot thank the owners enough for our stay, with all the little touches ( cream tea on arrival,Read more goodies for the dogs) we felt at home from the moment we walked in the door. Thank you again xx Hide

Amazing house with great old features.

Reviewed by Hannah 9th March 2019

A perfect and beautiful house chosen for 10 of us to celebrate my 40th birthday. Excellent communication throughout and a lot of thought put into making our experience enjoyable. This included a cream tea being left ready and milk in the fridge to having the hot tub already on. The house and rooms were absolutely stunning and made up beautifully. ARead moret no point did we feel cramped due to the number of rooms there. The location was also spot on with everything close by. Definitely recommended! Hide
