We have always been delighted, not easy to achieve being a family of 15 aged from 7 to 77. We particularly enjoyed the short walk along the road to see the new Aircraft Carrier. Fort Brockworth was also only a short walk away and was enjoyed by everyone.

The drive entrance was very narrow, and any improvement to that would be very welcome. The garden was large and ideal for the children to play in, the trampoline a great idea, though the flower beds needed maintenance. The house was comfortable, the conservatory a very nice addition and we ate in there more than the dining room. The quirky arrangement of the bathrooms didn't matter for a short stay. The beds are comfortable and every where was clean and attractive, if a little tired. The wii and the cd/hi fi were not working, but we left a note to inform Ken and presume that has been rectified. Overall a lovely house, which we enjoyed staying in, but a wider drive was needed before I would recommend Cambrian House to friends.
