Northleigh was a beautiful house with all mod-cons. It was clean and well-kept with great decor. Katie, the owner had thought of everything, from a lovely welcome pack and toiletries, Wi-Fi and even games/books available.

Absolutely beautiful house, lovely and peaceful. Lots of room for everyone and has everything you need. Lovely decor and surroundings.
