“Spread Out and Relax, The Roundhouse Gives You the Room”
Reviewed 23 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We had decided to take the family away for the New Year. With 2 grandparents 50+, 3 daughters, 2 partners, all in their 20's and 2 grandchildren, 5 and 2, we needed a reasonable amount of living space and a big dining table.
We had not been self-catering in the UK before so were a bit apprehensive. Because we booked quite late we had a good idea the weather wasn't going to be good, so knew there would be a lot of in-house entertainment needed; could so many of us survive for 5 nights.
Well to say the Roundhouse came up trumps would be an understatement. When we first arrived there was a problem with the heating. Sue, the owner, had a gas fitter out immediately and everything was fixed.
Sue could not have been more helpful, even down to lending us an electric whisk to make meringue's. Don't get me wrong the kitchen was exceptionally well stocked; if my hand had been stronger we wouldn't have needed it.
The lounge was spacious enough for all of us to sit comfortably and the fire burned brightly. The bedrooms were comfortable and bathrooms more than adequate. The dining table was big enough to play 5-a-side football on.
The cottages in the complex share a swimming pool, sauna, games room, outside play area and badminton and tennis courts. The other cottages were occupied but we had no problems when we wanted to use the facilities.
Although the weather did not give us much of chance to explore the area, what we saw was lovely.
We ate out at the Han Court Chinese restaurant, where they cooked the dishes without the use of mono-sodium glutamate or other additives extensively used in this type of cooking. All 7 adults agreed it was one of the best Chinese meals we had eaten.
We also had a nice meal at the Cedar Inn which served more traditional British food. In the summer both would have been a pleasant walk from the cottage.
We wish we could have used the small garden area, which we bet would have been a great venue for a sunny BBQ.
The owners work hard at giving guests a nice break in superbly furnished and comfortable cottages. Well, let me assure them their efforts were fully appreciated by our family.
