This place we described as a footballers mansion. We went as a whole family with 7 growing up children and the place is big enough for hide and seek to last for ages!

Reviewed by Tracey, 2nd July 2016

We stayed here July '16' with a group of 8 adults, 8 children ranging from 2 to 14 years and we all had a fantastic time. The house is absolutely huge and a great space for large get togethers, I agree with some other comments with it looking a little tired and could do with a lick of paint here and there and some beds are a bit uncomfortable but iRead moret doesn't take away from it being a beautiful house. The garden is so big and fab for playing games in and would recommend for a great holiday! Hide

Reviewed by Tim, 11th June 2016

This is a brilliant space if you are organising a large family gathering including children. Although the property is tired it does allow you to relax. The kitchen has all the neccersary amienities to self cater and offers a great breakfast bar environment. The dining room cop well with the number as does the living room which became a Euro 2016 "fRead morean zone"! The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable although many of the showers were not great. The dcor is tired and there are too many ornaments Hide
