Its the end of March and its like deep mid winter so Wheel Farm is a great place to be. We had a family weekend with 9 adults and two children in what was probably the biggest cottage on this small but tastefully laid out hamlet of cottages. Our hosts were unobtrusive but really helpful and welcoming.
Our lounge was fabulous with plenty of comfortable furniture, a very effective log burning stove and the biggest TV we've ever seen in a house!! All of which we used to the full. The pool and sauna became pretty much our own as no one else seemed to use it. We loved it though the changing rooms are a bit small it didn't matter with us all bing family.
The bedrooms were great and we easily fitted in with the two kids on the put me up and their own mattress. Could have done with more hanging and wardrobe space.
The cold weather outside kept us in a lot and we had a fantastic weekend. We cooked all our own meals too and the facilities just about coped. The oven was fine though with 11 of us the dining table was opened out and therefore a bit of a squeeze in the kitchen.
Our only little moan was that the kitchen equipment and crockery wasn't quite enough for the number of people we had which it should do really. But that didn't get in the way of a brilliant family weekend.
