Thompson family break

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend at 'Hobbis' house.

The house was charming and there was plenty to do for all the family, outside and in.

We would certainly consider staying here again.

The owners were very welcoming and helpful. Happy days.

Beautiful traditional property in lovely setting

  • 4 of 5

Excellent property and a warm welcome guaranteed. A really delightful house set in large gardens. There's enough space for a big group to stay inside the house and more than enough entertainment outside. Owners are very helpful and polite.
