Check availability and plan your break

"We had a very enjoyable weekend. We arrived late Friday afternoon to be greeted by Dave and given a twenty minute tour of the spacious house and grounds with an explanation of all the facilities. After a late brunch on Saturday cooked on the aga - my daughter put us all through an exhausting yoga session in the spacious living room after which we went for an hours walk in the local woods , the entrance to which is 250 yards down the road. The well used aga then delivered a late Sunday roast after which, with Monday work commitments, we all departed having had a short and relaxing stay at Roosthole. If we were lucky enough to have the same opportunity for a similar break at Roosthole we would jump at it. Thank you so much."
