stayed at this wonderful house for a local wedding, what a beautiful place to stay. the baths, showers, setting, house, beds, sofa's, kitchen are absolutely amazing. Highly Highly recommended.. The only thing that was not there was any sort of stair gate, and more protection is needed by the water.

Management response:

Thank you for your lovely review. We warn people to keep an eye on children at all times when staying especially outside The outside gate is shut to stop them going round to the pond which is part of the B&B rather than The Holiday Let. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hop to see you again. Pauline...
