We booked this house for an extended family break over the May half term weekend. The accommodation was absolutely fantastic – modern, bright, clean, spacious and beautifully presented. The location is idyllic and tranquil with a large garden and spacious drive that comfortably accommodated three cars. Once we got over just how impressive the house is, we quickly found it had everything we could possibly need. The hosts were very friendly and gave us a quick tour before leaving. They also checked if all was well during our stay.

In short, the house is superb, can’t fault it and would highly recommend it for any large group.

We are a group of 10 and had a stay here for 2 nights. The hosts are really friendly and well-
prepared before we arrived. The house is well-equipped, towels and toiletries are provided.
There are sufficient kitchen tools so that we could cook our breakfast and dinner. We also got 2 bottles of complimentary wine from the hosts. Everything is perfect and we hope to come back for another holiday sometime.

I booked this property for 10 people having a 2 night stay over the May bank holiday weekend. Our hosts were very accommodating and even left us a crate of beer to get the weekend started.

The house is situated down a quiet country lane behind electronically locked gates, which gave a comfortable and secure feel. The house is surrounded by plenty of grass and enough parking for several cars (we had 3 which fitted comfortably with plenty more room available). The house provided the wow factor as soon as we entered, our group was running around taking it all in like a bunch of excited children (we were a group of 10 adults). Our hosts gave a brief tour and left us to it. The house was absolutely immaculate and boasted a large kitchen with 2 ovens and plenty of surface area to prepare and cook meals. The front room has a large sofa, big enough to fit most of us on with plenty of chairs to deal with the over flow (2 of the sofa seats recline), there is a large flat screen TV with Sky & Sky Sports included. The bedrooms are all spacious and very nicely put together. The master bedroom has a view of the surrounding countryside which is a real treat first thing in the morning.

The town of Shaftesbury is a 10 minute drive away and has plenty of places to eat and drink.

In summary, the house was absolutely wonderful and I’d highly recommend it, especially for larger groups looking for somewhere to get away to. I’m even considering making it an annual trip!
