Terrific house and location

5 of 5
We stayed for three nights over New Year and really enjoyed our stay. The house is in a great location on the main village square with easy parking and close proximity to the magnificent church and well regarded gastropub. The house is very well equipped and was spotlessly clean. The living area is spacious and we really liked the oak floor and oak staircase. The bed was comfy and it was good having an ensuite. We noticed in the visitors book that many people came back to the house and we would have no hesitation either in returning. We highly recommend it.

A lovely bit of peace and tranquillity

Beautiful countryside location with everything you would need to keep the family entertained and parents relaxed. Would definitely recommend and book again. We stayed in the Linhay and it was spotless and spacious.
