The location is brilliant - beautiful farm and so is the property. Didn't have any problems with that. The only 2 areas that were a concern - the water pressure in the 2nd bathroom was nearly zero if someone else was using the shower at the same time. Also, there could have been bin bags, kitchen and toilet roll and cleaning soap etc kept so it couRead moreld be easy. Hide

Did our gang of 3 generations (ages 5 to 74) very nicely. Location is excellent and having a restaurant on-site for a latish arrival was really good news. The staff were unfailingly polite and helpful.
