What a wonderful spot to spend our 3 weeks in the UK visiting our daughter, son in law and our 2 lovely grand daughters. Great location to base ourselves in and travel around the many wonderful locations. Victoria was the perfect host and could not do enough for us. Will definitely stay here again when we next visit.
