All ages.Although it was an old house it was modernised in a sympathetic way. The small guests made good use of the pool which was big enough for adults too. We had magical sunsets enjoyed from the hot tub. All modcons in the kitchen made cooking the celebration meal easy and room for 14 (just)in the dining room. A quiet time DVD and the Rugby were enjoyed on the big screen in the entertainment room. We wish we had had more time to enjoy the garden and its facilities perhaps another time tho I reckon 90 might be a bridge too far. Good efficient management. Top rating and fully recommended.

This home did not disappoint, the owner was extremely flexible to all the comings and goings. It meant we could relax in-between all the preparations and offer the perfect hospitality to suppliers and guests. The space is bright and contemporary with a homely feel. Bathrooms are luxurious, being able to take an indulgent bath under the stars, perfect pre-wedding requisite! The kitchen is extensively equipped with everything you could possibly need. Sarah the housekeeper is on hand if you have any problems, and brings a warm welcome on arrival. The hamper with bread, butter, milk etc. was brilliant. The local shop and post office is a treasure trove of lovely products when you run short. The beds are comfy, so the essential good night’s sleep was enjoyed by all. It’s the first place I can honestly say we did not need to use our own pillows. The endless supply of towels and bedding was the best I’ve ever experienced and you can imagine with a bridal party to accommodate essential. We had a glorious week and would not have any hesitation in giving this property the highest recommendation.
