Very conveniently located, warm, comfortable - and we greatly appreciated the Christmas decorations and mince pies. Would certainly come again. (Noted in the guest book that some people have stayed 2, 3 and 4 times - says it all, doesn't it?)

In the lead up to the trip Suzannah was also incredibly helpful with any questions. This place is huge. And I really mean huge. Enough space for big groups to spread out and have privacy but also large communal areas for socialising. It has everything you need. The kitchen is well equipped, there is sky TV, a large dining area and a hottub pool area. We went during December and the whole house felt warm. I imagine the pool and decking in the summer would be heaven! Would definitely return in the future.
