Amazing place for a big gathering! Everything top notch!

  • 5 of 5

Dealing with Miles & Mandy from the outset was a pleasure... lovely friendly emails. They did not disappoint in person! This huge house was so perfect for our annnual gathering of 8 couples. So much space, wonderfully kitted our kitchen (with a dishwasher that washed every load in 3 mins 😀 ...fantastic!), lovely large dining room, and everyone had their own stunning en suite! Worth every penny! Would loved to have stayed longer! Rained all the while but that did mean we got full use out of the log burner and fires!

Generous house

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything we need. Especially facilities in the room and bathroom are excellent. From hand wash to window curtains are selected to exceed the usual standards. House owners Mr Miles and Mrs Mandy were very kind and helpful and also didn't hesitate to deliver the house standards to their guests. We wonder no one done the review for this excellent cottage.
