"A lovely house in attractive surroundings. We were a party of 14, aged 6 to 81 plus a dog. There was ample room for everyone, with comfy beds and a good kitchen. We enjoyed the farm animals, the pool, the hot tub and sitting around in the conservatory with a fabulous view. All in all it couldn't have been better!"
