"WOW!" every one of us used that word on entering. It is perfect for a large group, very communal with it's open plan living area & huge table that seated all 16 of us together plus two toddlers. Plenty to do in the area & a brilliant caf? nearby too ( though a group of walkers thought we were the caf? & sat down ready to order on our outside table!). We never tired of taking in the stunning views from the Chapel windows too. The biggest downside was the lack of mirrors, sounds petty but with a large number of females staying it did prove a real issue! None at all in most bedrooms so all of us formed regular queues outside the three bedrooms that had them so we could do makeup & hair! Seemed so strange to of thought to of put a small shelf under a mirror with a plug in these rooms ( ideal for straighteners )& yet they didn't bother to even put just a mirror in all the others, yes there were mirrors in the bathrooms but these steamed up and couldn't use electrical items near them. One big communicable full length mirror in the hallway would be good too, not a single one of those to be had anywhere! Perhaps vampires own this property??? The showers were fantastic but an addition of caddies to hold soap & shampoo in them would be useful. The hot water ran out sometimes but there were a lot of us having showers at the same time so to be expected. Dishwasher is a nightmare as rack falls off the bottom runners when full, despite, earlier reviews telling them this, owners have still not repaired it , drove us all mad! Seems sad to complain about these things as the property is gorgeous and the owners have put lots of thoughtful additions into it, like the toys and toddler kitchen. It is spotless and kitchen is well equipped. But if they put the above problems to rights it would be perfect!!! We would come again and recommend it highly (already have done and friends are booking it ) but would tell people to take mirrors and extension cables which really you shouldn't have to do. We never got to use the gorgeous looking fire, we had fantastic weather!

The property was fantastic and the views were out of this world. There was plenty of everything, even a sauna. I feel very lucky to have stayed in such a beautiful house in a beautiful place. We didn't want to leave!
Mrs Grimston

The converted chapel was stunningly beautiful as were the views through the arch windows. The games room and sauna were both well used and the overall spacious accommodation meant that everyone could totally relax and chill out. It was a wonderful holiday for us all.
