We recent had the pleasure to stay here and they couldn't have been more helpful in making our stay very enjoyable. Unfortunately it was for only one night but it is a great place to base your visit.... More

We stayed for two nights and enjoyed the house and the area. Mark and Jane were gracious hosts. The rooms (one for parents, one for children) were quite comfortable and attractive. Breakfast was great.

Thanks for the review. It's a great idea to book rooms 2 and 3 for families with older children. It works really well. Molly sends a lick ! More
