“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

Set in lovely woodlands makes you feel a million miles away but in truth there are lots of attractions very close at hand- giving you the best of both worlds.
The property is very well kept and clean, with a log fire in the lounge area and a good size kitchen with lots of work space. The dining table is long with benches but it can get cramped- we solved this by using the chairs from outside and sat them at each end, which helped a lot. There are various bedrooms, including two on the ground floor (suitable for anyone with mobility problems). Bathrooms on both levels with lots of very hot water.
Only a couple of niggles - there are ample plates, dishes, cups etc however there was a lack of cooking utensils which made catering for the whole party somewhat difficult. The dishwasher was not fantastic and there were no tea towels... but these are our only complaints!
We had a fabulous stay and certainly hope to return!

Liked best: Open plan lounge and kitchen meant no one was seperated
Liked least: Sofa- split into single chairs to allow manoeuvring, but this took away from the comfort.
