Would highly recommend Double House for a family gathering. We were 6 adults + 2 toddlers but knew it would be fine with more. The grounds are wonderful to explore for kids, the patio for outdoor eating, plenty of room indoors for everyone. This one is a keeper.

Very spacious rooms, excellent bathroom facilities, great view, good space outside, plenty of parking. For those over 6', beware the low beams in the kitchen. WiFi would be a problem if you needed to work from the property or use Netflix or similar. With these provisos, a lovely property in a good location, great for a multi-generational gathering.

The farmhouse provided an ideal venue for a family reunion. We particularly appreciated the outside space; the grassed area outside the house and the orchard were perfect for youngsters to let off steam. A well equipped kitchen and lots of space on the ground floor contributed to a very relaxed weekend.

The House is very nice and spacious. We did not realise it was set very close to a fairly busy road,it was a little tricky to keep the children away towards the back of the house.the stream was the other obstacle ,we think it needs a fence over the little bridge. Set this aside we had a great family gathering!
