Virtually perfect
We stayed at field head cottage/house during Easter. It is a beautiful house with all the furnishings and facilities spotless and of a very high quality. It is like having your own mini stately home ! It?s location is great as well with beautiful views across the estate from one of the lounges and bedrooms. Only fault can find with it is that it didn?t have a bottle opener or corkscrew which I?m sure will be rectified ! Worth every penny and can thoroughly recommend if you want a bit of luxury in the lakes
