The children were able to watch a barn owl hunting for mice etc. There was a hare which came really close to the house, and to cap it all they saw a group of deer when they took the dog for a walk. After Sunday lunch at The Trout most walked back to the house along the riverside, a most enjoyable walk. There was also a bullfinch which became obsessive with his reflection in the door windows. He was there all weekend and there were some fabulous photos taken. The house is really spacious with plenty of room downstairs for everyone to "do their own thing". It is definitely a property that we would keep in mind for a further visit to that area.

The gardens around the property are beautiful and there is so much for children to do. I can recommend Deborah's cooking too, she made us the most amazing dinner on our last night. We will definitely be returning.
