3 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 November 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Cyrus was welcoming and contactable and the area is lovely for walking but we found the noise of planes overhead to be quite loud from 6am till late. The house is large and clean but has not been renovated and is in need of maintenance and repair work. The grounds are large and enclosed but not suitable for unsupervised children... more

Management response:

The property is 12 miles away from an airport. This is a traditional country house and not a modern house in terms of decoration. I am not sure what is meant by ladders, etc being accessible. If this comment refers to the open barn ( on the far side of the grounds), it has now been fenced off. more
