An excellent property for a family get together. We enjoyed the hot tub, pool table and tennis courts as well as local walks to the lake. The outdoor area was easy for children to play and for eating outside. A very friendly welcome from the owners.

What a fabulous holiday. We wanted to come together as a wider family whilst staying safe and having our own space. The main 5 rooms are fantastic, Nana was happy in the downstairs endroom which was a traditional style and the surprise of a mini kitchen. Sarah and Jonathan are lovely; leave you to get on with it but close by if needed. We had days Read moreout, but so much enjoyed the main kitchen/living space and mezzanine levels. A really well thought out barn conversion. Already booked for next year! Hide
