Jenny the owner is a lovely person and very helpful and always on hand to help in anyway she can. We all said we didn't want to go home and thought we could sneak back in when Jenny wasn't looking. Lots of outdoor activities to do and places to visit or just sit back and enjoy the view.

There were 16 of us (3 families) and we couldn't have been made more welcome. Nothing was to much for Jeanette and Andrew! The house was lovely and warm when we arrived with a roaring fire going in the sitting room. Nearly all of the rooms have en-suites which was such a blessing and the heated towel rails were an extra bonus. The grounds are fantastic and the house is well equipped for out door activities: even bicycles were provided! Jeanette and Andrew cooked us all a meal worthy of a top restaurant, and they arranged for a fantastic treasure hunt in the grounds for the 2 children in our group. We wholeheartedly recommend this house to anyone who wants to have a fantastic time in a larger group. The kitchen is well equipped and there is lots to do in the house for those days when the weather isn't as nice as we would like it to be! We are hoping to return next year!
