17 of my family stayed here this summer and we had a brilliant time.It was like staying at Downton Abbey .Every evening we would play games on the lawn bowls, crochet, rounders and everyone enjoyed the swimming pool.The surrounding area was great for walks with our many dogs.The house is so big you can easily find a quiet spot for yourself ,it was clean and the antique furniture really made it feel grand.we all had a wonderful famy holiday.Thank you.
