The property was immaculate and wonderfully appointed for our mixed age party. All six bedrooms were ensuite plus 2 downstairs cloakrooms very convenient. There were 2 full kitchens with seating (tables and stools) and 2 frig/freezers. The on site facilities tennis court, outside tables and chairs and a BIG hot tub were all used and enjoyed. Sarah Read morethe owner was helpful and not intrusive and she recommended an excellent caterer for a celebratory meal which was an excellent choice. Hide
