This was a great house for a family get away [or equally good for a group of friends, as so spacious] We used the 2 double and 2 twin rooms which all had their own en-suites which was an added bonus.

We picked this property for an 80th birthday celebration. We were not disappointed! Limekiln House was better than expected, the photographs do not do it justice. It was warm, roomy, comfortable and well equipped with super countryside views. We would definitely recommend it for a lovely family holiday; we thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay. Thank you.

A warm and comfortable house in beautiful surroundings. We were welcomed with Christmas decorations which made us feel instantly at home, and a generous welcome pack of food and wine! The rooms were spacious and spotless, and the large kitchen had every device one might want and more. The wood burner made the sitting room very cosy, and its dual... More

Thank you for your lovely review and thank you for leaving the house in immaculate condition. We asked Santa if he could arrange for one of his reindeer to peer over the hedge, I think it was Prancer, so glad he obliged! Best wishes for the New Year, Trish More

From the moment we arrived to find a very welcome, "welcome pack" (fresh eggs, milk, biscuits, tea/coffee/sugar bread) to the time we left, we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay here. Nine of us have taken an annual get-together for the past 8 years and can honestly say this is one of the best (if not THE best) places we have... More
