Great family holiday



Date of Stay

Mar 25, 2016



We had a lovely stay over the Easter holiday with our extended family. The house and grounds are very well maintained. Our little girl loved collecting the fresh eggs from the hens everyday. Sally couldn't have done more to make our stay enjoyable. Would definitely recommend and come back again!

Recommended for: Families with Young Children.

Superb stay

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property, perfect for our needs. It is very well designed, maintained and equipped. Sally is delightful and ensured we had the perfect stay, with help about transport, food, the locality etc. She rang taxi firms on our behalf : little extras like that made it all so easy for us and a great stay. Thank you
