Jenny J - April 2017


We regularly go on group holidays this is our 4th one. This house is outstanding. The pictures don't do it justice. I'm the cook for the holidays and I never wanted to leave the beautiful kitchen that was well equipped. The view from the kitchen was breathtaking. We all went on different excursion came back daily with are stories of what we had discovered in the area. Can't recommend highly enough.

Such a huge house in an amazing quaint location. You will find it very easy to relax here. The house comes with all the amenities you will need along with a games room and gym. It also has an amazing garden and outdoor patio for barbecues and meals. The only problem you may have is that you don't get a chance to visit all the rooms because this place is huge! The house also comes with loads of board games and cards and TV and wifi.

“Weekend away”

Peaceful and tranquil setting with excellent facilities in beautiful grounds. Bedrooms were huge and clean, kitchen was enormous with ample large goods and great views and scenery throughout. Wifi, in-built speakers, snooker table were all great touches, along with a veranda. Would definitely recommend and plan to visit again.
