A super friendly welcome starts a fabulous stay. Everything is wonderful with loads of extras -from the gorgeous honey on the welcome tray to the set up in the barbecue hut. The children loved the quirky upstairs rooms. We parents loved the quiet and the aura of calm. Can't wait for our next visit more

Management response:

Hi and thank you for the fab review. We are so glad you loved the honey, welcome tray, BBQ hut etc and so pleased you both enjoyed the evening peace and calm. Prob a lot to do with the kids exhausting themselves at the nearby park. But Fools Haven will take the credit all the same! Best wishes to you... more
