An impressive, well equipped house with a beautiful garden. Great games room. We liked the quality of the beds and mattresses. The house manager and owner were very helpful and welcoming.

The house was a beautiful size for the whole family to spend a memorable Christmas together. The village was lovely too, in walking distance to the pub, restaurants and the local spar.
