My family and I stayed here for a weekend as we won't see them at Christmas. It was wonderful to have us all stay in the same place and we had travelled from different locations, both north and south of the country.

Ideal for a family get-together - good bedrooms with plenty of bathrooms. Feel owners should could check regularly. We had to mend broken dining chair, ceiling lights in kitchen loose from ceiling and my shower had a large black actively growing mould. Sorry to be negative but this was not pleasant. Ideally placed to walk into the village.

Birch House suited our family very well. We were 5 adults, one 5 year old and a 16 month old. The house was clean, spacious, well equipped and had an excellent location to walk to the town and to drive to nearby attractions.
