Great location for a weekend away with friends - lots of space for everyone, really charming location and lovely communal spaces for eating together and hanging out. Good nearby walks, pub, the works!

Reviewed by Anne, 22nd September 2017

It is perfect for a large extended family of all ages and brilliant for children. We could have a lazy breakfast inside whilst watching the children playing in the Wendy house and swinging on the rope swing at the other end of the garden. The lounge was so cosy and relaxing for chatting late into the night. Found the books fascinating.

Reviewed by Sarah, 14th July 2017

This is a wonderful house and garden. We all felt at home because it is clearly cherished by the family who own it. The location is brilliant: down the road is the river where I saw dippers, grey wagtails and a heron and up the road is the challenge of Sugar Loaf mountain. The garden is stunning, an invitation to explore. The house is full of booksRead more and pictures. Never a dull moment! Hide

Beautiful property, great beds, lovely views and huge rambling garden to explore. We were at this house for a ladies weekend but I can also imagine it would be great for a 2-3 families to share. We would considering returning.
