We have just had a lovely weekend at the Hall with family for a special occasion and we were aged between 2 and 93 and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Everything is as described and very comfortable. Everyone had very good nights sleep in the comfortable beds. The area were the Hall is situated is beautiful and great to explore. We made use of the grRead moreounds and tennis court and the fabulous games room. I would highly recommend this property for a family or friends gathering Hide
