Reviewed 15 November 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We visited late Oct for a family celebration. There were 9 adults and the house provided plenty of space for us all. It is a lovely house that feels very much like a home from home. It’s in a great location and we would certainly visit again!

Lovely big kitchen and two sitting rooms, which suited us perfectly. Very nicely decorated as well. Really felt like a luxury accommodation! The location is brilliant too. We will...
