Like a Tardis
All booking and pre travel arrangements were handled very professionally with helpful directions at the end of the trip. Sylvia very kindly provided us with scones, jam & cream, enough for 9. The property was very large and the photos do not do it justice, it consisted of 2 double rooms, 1 twin and 1 family room with a double and a single bed, a large living room a large kitchen with 2 utility rooms one ideal for the dogs. The twin room was situated at the rear of the property with a shower room and toilet right next to it forming a separate annexe. The garden was large enough for our 2 small dogs to stretch their legs & fully enclosed, but there is a gateway into the field at the rear of the property which we used for their daily walks, we did not have to use their leads once, brilliant. The kitchen was very well equipped with every utensil or pot or pan you could want. Ideally located for many towns, but on a quiet B road a few miles off of the A303.

House was much more spacious than the photos give it credit, we were very comfortable there.
