Lovely clean, big house in a secluded location. Views are amazing. Perfect for extended family holidays. Key safes outside made it convenient if we got back home at different times. Two sitting rooms allowed us to spread out as well as all sitting together at the big kitchen table. Kitchen has more than enough pots, pans and glasses etc. Aga and electric oven, two fridge freezers and small freezer, really useful for a large number of people. No mobile phone coverage at all and intermittent Internet. Lots of stairs in kitchen but children, even toddler quickly got used to them. We queried the lack of bbq, a couple of days later one arrived ! Just a few niggles stopped it from being perfect, We had to spend an hour tidying up outside before we could let young children out. There were so many nettles and thistles growing on the path and the patio. Broken wooden chairs, and broken hand trowel, had to sweep up rubbish- cigarette ends from patio. We couldn't get into the fenced grassed area, the door out to it was locked and the little gate was overgrown with nettles. Grass was too overgrown anyway for the little ones. Gardener came to cut the grass at around 8 am the day before we went home, irritating when no one had been in the house the week before us. The pots outside were just full of weeds, not very pretty. A man came to service Aga, we managed to find one key but he had to unscrew a locked door to gain access to one of the the boiler rooms.

The layout of the house was brilliant. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the house had everything we needed!

I went for my 60th birthday with my family and it was perfect. The accommodation and the surrounding area was just what we wanted. Thank you so much for the perfect place!
Mrs Richardson

The property was absolutely perfect with enough space for our extended family. We have stayed in lots of self catering accommodation but this was by far the best equipped. The location was stunning and we all want to come back to explore the area further.
