The house was well equipped and although fitting nine people in was a bit of a squeeze in the bedrooms it was a lovely place to relax in. The children loved being able to use the trampoline and swings and the very friendly dogs were an added bonus too 😊. Thanks for a lovely stay!

The pizza oven outside, very kindly lit by Mr Harrison, was great fun! There was certainly plenty of room for 6 of us. The local pub, 5 minutes walk away, is supposed to be excellent but it was closed due to an electrical fault!
