This house really has the "wow" factor. There are no words adequate enough to describe how much we all, without exception, loved our week in this gorgeous, spacious, comfortable house. At the end of a day out and about, it was a pleasure to come back and we all said it felt so homely and welcoming. The views from every room are stunning. My 10 yearRead more old granddaughter wanted to hide in the wardrobe and stay forever! None of us (8 adults, 4 children) wanted to leave and we all long to return soon x Hide

A lovely large house with a number of lounges. Lovely garden with lots of space. There was a nice large outside stone and slate outhouse that the kids could use, although it needs cleaning out and tidying.
