Gorgeous place for a relaxing break

5 of 5
The house was beautiful and well-kept and everything was thought of. There was a lovely welcome pack when we arrived after the long journey along with plenty of information for things to do in the local area. Ruth came to clean the pool whilst we were there and was super helpful with information for Futuroscope and also with finding somewhere to replace our punctured tyre! Hopefully we will be back soon! Many Thanks Again for everything Ruth, and sorry for the delay in the review!

A very comfortable property, lots of wood left to use on the huge stove, which was topped up for the first frost of the year. Beds were very comfortable and house. Was well equipped.
