We stayed with Sue and Robin for 3 nights in April and really enjoyed our stay. The house and estate are wonderful, with hosts to match! We didn't get to spend as much time in the house as we would have liked and almost felt that we should cut out any outside excursions and just enjoy the house. It was great fun walking the grounds with Sue while she showed us all the fruits, vegetables, and flowers she grew. Given that our large (8) group included 2 small kids and 2 teenagers, we were a bit tentative about what to expect, but the hosts put us at ease. The hot tub was fun as well, although we didn't have time for the pool.
I went a bit lower on the 'value' largely because it does cost more than a high end hotel, but what you get in return is a whole different experience.
