    Very helpful and informative - quick responses to queries. Great property - lots of room, well equipped, lovely garden. Owners very helpful. Bathroom ratio may put some people off but it was fine for our group (6 mums with babies) and I think worth juggling shower time to stay in a beautiful house with lots of character!

    Always ready to help when I had a query. A lot of small print which made me feel nervous about the holiday. A wonderful holiday. The house and grounds were perfect for our needs (a large, mixed age, family gathering) Comfortable; simply but tastefully/elegantly decorated and furnished; thoughtful touches, e.g. the flowers in each room; Tabitha, the owner, very friendly and helpful, but happy to allow us to feel it was our home for the week. Would highly recommend it!
