“It is an ideal family holiday home and its location is a perfect holiday choice.”
Reviewed 15 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Our group had a memorable and enjoyable 3 nights stay in Glassonby Old Hall in early August 2013. The kitchen was so well equipped and we had so much fun making dinners every night.

The scenic view from my bedroom window made me want to come back to this house many more times. It is located at a very quiet and peaceful part of the village. I enjoyed most the short walks around the fields.

We had hired cars so we went to nearby "must visit" places. There is a long list of places to go with a car.

The house provides a perfect atmosphere for a family holiday.
