About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
My family and I went to the farmhouse on this site for Christmas - 6 adults, 3 children. The farmouse was beautfiully decorated, warm, cosy and clean - the perfect place to spend Christmas. The beds were really comfy and the kitchen was well equipped - we cooked a full christmas dinner and it was lovely - even though I say so myself !
The jacuzzi was a great touch - cold outside but warm in the tub and it was treated every day but the staff. All the bar staff and team at the site were really friendly and helpful. I can imagine the farmhouse would be beautiful in the summer and perfect for a big family celebration as there is plenty of room and the gardens would be lovely.
Thank you for making it a lovely christmas and we hope to return next year.
