The house was just perfect for our big family to get together. It is very comfortable, the bedrooms were exceptional and it was brilliant having a very large dining table.
Mrs Davey

Everything that we needed for the 11 guests was there, actually we all had more than we needed. The property is beautifully situated with wonderful views out of the bedroom windows. All the rooms are well appointed and tastefully furnished with a great mix of old fashioned style and modern practicality. There is more than enough cutlery, crockery and cookware. The beds were all good and the bathrooms well equipped. The garden was beautiful and very well kept. In short, we would highly recommend this property to anyone wishing to accommodate a larger group of guests.

I celebrated my 60th Birthday here with 9 members of my family and friends visited throughout the week end. We will re-book this and would like to stay longer for the next visit, the views are breathtaking and if you have children they are well catered for with ample toys both inside and outside the house. Many thanks for allowing us the pleasure of using your home must go to the owner, a lovely lady.
Mrs Groves
