A charming Chateau in a tranquil setting

  • 4 of 5

Brimming with character, this Chateau is ideally suited to accommodate large groups of friends/ family with young children. Our children and dogs were in seventh heaven with plenty of outside space to keep them entertained for hours.

For a winter stay like ours, the large Inglenook fire was a huge feature and a welcome way to relax in the evenings.

The Chateau offers a vast amount of accommodation over 3 floors. The top floor with its bedrooms and kitchen/ sitting room made for a great "den" for the children. The condition of the decor is not perfect however this actually suited our group well and allowed for a more relaxing stay.

Whilst the owners Fiona and Mark were not present during our stay, they were a delight to deal with.
