The Carthouse is amazing. The attention to detail was incredible, from wine waiting in the fridge (thank you very much it was really appreciated!) to the automatic lights in the bathroom, everything had been carefully thought through. The owners were so kind & helpful. We had a lovely relaxing holiday.
