Lovely accommodation. The house is so well equipped and a real home from home. It is also set in beautiful grounds with amazing views. It was the perfect retreat for our family of 15. We enjoyed our croquet and table tennis tournaments and made good use of the karaoke machine. We all had a fantastic time and would highly recommend to others.
