Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home away from home We had an enjoyable weekend in this lovely home away from home. The house is well equipped and the beds are very comfortable. The setup would work well for 2 families with children - lots of games & dvds in the house and table tennis & pool tables in the shed. The owners were helpful and very easy to communicate with.
