Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous escape Spent a very relaxing weekend with a group of friends. Fabulously equipped kitchen. Amazing bedrooms. Lots of space for both alone time and gathering together. Garden was great with expansive lawns, lots of garden beds and some beautiful old trees. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could not recommend more I could not recommend this place more and here is why: - We arrived late on a cold night, the owner waited and greeted us with all the lights and heating turned on waiting for us. She had also prepared two fireplaces for us to use if we wished. - Every bedroom had an extra blanket and every chair had a blanket on it if we needed. - Our stay included a continental breakfast which included milk, juice, cereal, toast and eggs. They also had an excellent coffee maker which meant we didn't have to go out seeking for cafe the next morning but we're able to take our time. - They have recently added a spa bath which wasn't advertised but was a fantastic surprise! Although the house was oddly layed out and the taps for hot and cold were incorrectly labeled on the main bath, it did not hinder our thorough enjoyment of this property. We will definitely re-book here in the future.
