Hardly a cottage with more space to explore in one room than your average London flat....this is the place to relax, rewind and enjoy. Perfect for our family .... room to be together and room to be apart. Very important when the youngest is 10 and the eldest 85! Bedrooms a plenty and bathrooms too, dark skies, warm kitchen, grand halls and much to Read moredo for old fashioned entertainment. There is also WiiFi for those who can't survive without! A perfect family retreat for a special occasion. Hide

We had a great time - all of us, ages 6 - 75 and everything in between. The Hall is a delight with so much room everywhere. The bedrooms and bathrooms were wonderful and the furnishings all through the house were impressive. The kitchen was amazing. The wi-fi was a bit intermittent but with so much to do it didn't matter greatly, although the youngRead moresters would have appreciated it. Tennis, snooker and table tennis were much enjoyed. Thank you - we had a ball! Hide
