we, being grandparents in our early 50's and 2 grandchildren aged 7 and 10, stayed for 1 week at start of august, 13. We had 3 bed riverside property, next to the rambling river looking over to the lake. The view was fantastic especially from the bedroom balcony. Had wonderful weather for most of the week. the children loved the freedom of running around and playing, fishing and hunting (spying on the very friendly wild rabbits).
The house had all you would need - kitchen lovely - Jacuzzi and sauna - 2 bathrooms - patio doors - and Ron the estate manager has a wealth of knowledge and very friendly and helpful. Close to lots of local attractions - had a couple of lovely days out but also spent some very relaxing days at rosecraddoc.
What made our holiday even more special was the wonderful hosting skills of Alex at the Village Inn (on site). What a truly lovely lady - thank you Alex - The food was fabulous - especially the parfait - big big thank you Alex - The children fell in love with Alex as she makes the best burger sauce ever and she spoils them rotten - nothing was too much.
We will definitely be going back - hopefully soon lol
