My sister in law booked this to celebrate my 65th birthday. There were 16 of us from aged 4 to 66 and we had the best time ever. The house is beautiful with everything you could want and the location is stunning. Would definitely recommend.

Management response:

Carol, Many thanks:) It was a pleasure having you all to stay. I look forward to seeing you again soon. Octavia

We stayed during a family wedding at another location. This is an absolutely beautiful property. I would suggest that visitors take the time to just back away and look at the property from outside and think about the centuries of history that have taken place here. Wonderful library and large meeting room with a "whispering" ceiling.

Management response:

Thank you so much for our review. It was a pleasure to host you. I have to say, i am wondering what you meant by the whispering ceiling! Do come back again soon...
