The 3 of us arrived on Friday 15th August 2014, and after 7 nights with much regret had to leave this relaxing location. The welcome from Michelle was warm as she showed me around the property and explained the refuse regime. The hot tub at the property had lots of use, as did the games room, my son learning to...

Wonderful location down narrow road. Very comfortable room with excellent shower. Breakfast OK. Owners not very forthcoming, could do with a warmer welcome(and other guest rather rude!). Facilities generally good, very clear TV and WiFi reasonably quick, tennis court and gardens etc. Very big house

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review and I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We were a little surprised by a comments concerning our other guest, a lady on her own, but perhaps she was a little bit reserved at breakfast. As to your arrival, we regret if you did not find us...

The hosts provided a warm welcome and a quick, get away breakfast for us in the morning. The house and grounds are stunning. It's a shame that we did not have time to take full advantage of the facilities... More

Breakfast was plentiful,excellent and prompt. Recommended if you are... More
