We stayed in October 2012 and I'm sorry it has taken so long to write this review. We were a family of 4 - myself and husband and 2 and 10 year old children.
Even though we had a pretty energetic 2 year old Pamela went to a lot of trouble to make us feel that he was absolutely welcome - maybe naively so - the interior and furnishings in the house are so stunning that I actually was constantly worried about him ransacking the place! If we'd been there sans kids we would have just luxuriated in the beautiful surroundings.
Having said that, our oldest just loved the gorgeous "cubby hole" bed and our whole family fell in love with the village. The houses on the canals, the tavern, the gardens, the lake, the swans, the nearby horses running along beside us on the bikes we'd hired - this village, along with the accommodation, totally exceeded our expectations and if we were to come back we would stay a lot longer.
I read someone's review saying the owners are not friendly - I must admit at first we found Karel to be a bit that way - not a lot of welcome chit chat on the way in from the airport - but as we stayed longer we realised he is just a reserved kind of guy. However both he and Pamela were incredibly helpful and we thank them for our visit and thank both of them for looking after us so well - including for our beautiful special dinner. We also thank them for posting back to Australia something we had left behind.
