This holiday property was without doubt the best property we have stayed at, in over 30 years of having large family group holidays. Everything we needed was provided - and worked! Two top quality washing machines and dryers, a large fridge and chest freezer, an enormous electric kettle, two dishwashers, a wine chiller, plenty of crockery and cutlery, the list is endless! The beds were all comfortable, the showers (all en-suite) worked and provided hot water. We have never returned to a holiday property we may return to this one.
Mrs Groome

The accommodation was superbly comfortable. It was great to come back after a long walk, leave boots and damp gear in the boot room and, after tea and cake, sink into steaming baths. There seemed to be an endless supply of hot water. A highlight was our final meal, the chef and the butler gave us a superb evening. Not only was the food top class, but the meal incorporated surprises and treats, fun and good humour. We were bowled over by the friendliness of the team.
Mrs Henley

We liked the whole holiday; from the professional and friendly staff to the house and grounds. I cannot say enough about it. The house was warm, well stocked and we felt completely at home and relaxed. We loved it.
Mrs Cooper

The caretakers were absolutely lovely and very helpful. The house is absolutely beautiful and the bedrooms are massive with stunning views from every window. There were bathrooms absolutely everywhere. We would recommend this house to absolutely anyone.
Mr Wentworth

A fabulous house and location - we all LOVED it and would definitely use this property again, it exceeded all expectations. Thank you so much.
