Reviewed by Karen, 3rd May 2019

The accommodation was perfect for the number of people in our party, which consisted of six adults and three children. Having three bathrooms was a bonus. The open plan living area was very conducive to socialising, however having an open plan upstairs bedroom restricted any privacy and impacted on downstairs use. The conversion of the Old Church HRead moreall has been done extremely well with good quality fitments. The pizza oven outside and hot tub were a great treat. Hide
