We stayed in the self contained house & loved it. Perfect for us, with separate rooms for the kids. The kids loved the animals, (dog & sheep), climbing the big trees & the pool was used many, many times. It was great to relax with a drink by the pool, whilst the kids swam, with very few, if any other guests around. We had two great meals at the main house (home style cooking at it's absolute best). The location seems a little way from things, but the view, accommodation & hospitality more than make up for it. We spent Christmas there and they put up decorations & a tree in the self contained house just to excite the kids. The accommodation was immaculate and the hosts delightful, we even joined their New Year celebrations.
