We all appreciated the comfort of the accommodation, particularly the spacious lounge and the beauty of the surrounding Park, particularly the gardens of Graythwaite Hall.
Mrs Bright

A beautiful place, with cottages designed in and around a court yard. The accommodation was excellent and despite the weather, we managed to visit some lovely picturesque places. Both my two adult children agreed that they felt relaxed and would visit again. Used the pool and table tennis everyday. Would certainly recommend to others.
Mrs Bagley

A beautiful cottage in a gorgeous setting, we are looking forward to a return visit!
Mr Graham

The property suited our needs very well. All on ground floor and perfect for twin boys of 17 months! The cottage is spacious and well equipped.
Mrs Barr

Loved the cottage! The beds were comfortable, it was cosy and contained everything we needed. The swimming pool and table tennis were a fab addition. Loved that we could take our 2 dogs. The location was beautiful and we loved being away from everything, especially a phone signal!
