A lovely house in a quiet rural location but only about 10mins away from shop and pubs. The drive up to the house was very muddy after heavy rain but sure it would be fine in summer. We were a family aged from 9 to 76 and we all had a great time. We all enjoyed the pool, tennis court, table tennis and everything else on offer. The kitchen was well Read moreequipped and the Aga easy to get used to. All bedrooms had comfy beds and lots of space and the bathrooms of an excellent standard. Hide

We filled this beautiful house with family and friends, and despite poor weather everyone had a fabulous time, especially in the swimming pool. The house was so cosy, and the kitchen was our main focus, which was well equipped, and plenty of room. Michelle looked after us well, and sent an electrician immediately when the smoke alarm played up.

Amazing property tucked away for total seclusion. We have had swimming pools and games rooms before - but not like these - the only problem was getting the children out of the pool which really was warm.
