excellent property, easy access to local amenities
We had a fantastic time, the property was excellent and had everything we needed. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. The local area was great for shops, site seeing and the beech. We would defiantly stay again.
A great place to stay for families / larger groups
Booking process was very straightforward and with quick replies from owner. Warm welcome from owners on arrival.
Facilities are great with home-from-home feel. Very well equipped kitchen, lounge (Sky TV, wifi etc). The garden is a delight and on 'good weather days' was lovely to spend family time in, as well as for evening drinks! Children loved feeding the fish in the pond. Very convenient location with many local sites and visitor attractions within easy reach. We would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone.
Would suggest you request email information (directions etc) week prior to arrival)... not a criticism, just a suggestion!
