Stayed here for two weeks with my young family and dog, we had a great time. The house is beautiful inside and out, the walled garden was perfect for my dogs as I didn't have to watch them constantly. Extremely well equipped, had everything we needed and more. The hot tub was a great addition. In a lovely peaceful location but near enough to local amenities. Two large supermarkets a 10 min drive away with everything you could need. We will definitely be coming back here again! Thank you for making our stay so easy and enjoyable.
