This was a beautiful place to stay, very clean and tidy. It suited us as the very peaceful setting was great. Loved the idea of a complete different building for the games room. The older ones could go and play pool, darts etc; while the little ones could sleep with no disturbance. Very satisfied

Super holiday in this lovely well equipped cottage. Great for large families or groups of friends. The games room is essential in rainy days.

This was a great cottage - clean and spacious and as advertised. The games room away from the house was perfect for those who are a bit noisy leaving a peaceful space to relax in the main house as we were 3 generations. The bbq hut, sauna and hot tub were brilliant and the outside space with views also a lovely place to be.

This is a very thoughtfully furnished and spacious comfortable cottage with a lovely garden and beautiful views. It is sited at the end of a long farm track with a number of other smaller cottages.
