From the moment we arrived we felt completely at home here. The owners live on site so our late arrival - due to getting very lost - was not a problem for the charming hosts. The properties have been beautifully fitted out with high quality furnishings, linens and kitchen equipment. A tranquil and utterly unspoilt part of the world, sitting out in the beautiful grounds on an early summer evening was a true pleasure. Everything you need is there - a laundry, books and maps of the local area, boot room for muddy walking boots plus wifi for planning the next day's journey. Whilst a little of the beaten track, ithe properties are within a very short driving distance of picturesque market towns, shapes and supermarkets and the dramatic North East Coast. I just wish we could have stayed longer.
