Brilliant! Relaxing - just what we needed.

  • 5 of 5

It is just as pictured! A lovely countryside retreat with incredible attention to detail. From the view to the cleanliness to the top notch linens - you will not be disappointed. It is a bit out of the way. If you are not a Brit, be careful of how GPS routes you in and out of the property. The roads can be single lane with no visibility. If you know the area - piece of cake. Thank you for your hospitality!! It shows al over the house.
