The Glass House was the perfect place for this - very high standard both inside and out. The pool is extra special, the bed very comfortable, the kitchen has good quality equipment. Every time you step out on the terrace, the view takes your breath away. It is just beautiful to sit out with a cup of coffee before sun rise and take in the sight and smell of the countryside. Equally so in the evening with the candles lit on the terrace and a good quality bottle of red for a fraction of what we pay in the UK. Staying at the Glass House ensures peace and quiet and guarantees a relaxing holiday. Enjoyed our week so much we have booked 2 weeks next year to celebrate another 50th .... we enjoyed it that much x

The accommodation was clean, well maintained, and comfortable, providing everything we could need. The terrace is a great area to eat at any time of day. The pool and gardens were lovely to relax and play around and were safe for our daughter. Weather, as expected, was superb. Oliver is a welcoming, charming and helpful host
