We were a family of Grandparents, parents and two boys ages 7 & 5. We loved the house and the garden. We were blessed with great weather and the garden was used a lot. The boys - and their cousins when they joined us loved the tree house and all the games in the summer house.
The house is very well equipped and was lovely and clean. It was a nice touch to leave a bottle of Little Thatch wine for us and we appreciated the milk too.
The location of the downstairs bedroom is ideal for grandparents as it's so far away from the rest of the house and the shower room is right next door. It is a little creaky as you would expect in such an old house so you do tend to hear the floor boards creaking a bit.
As other people have commented in the visitors book, it isn't really suitable for 8 people - very comfortable for 6 - not only is no bedding provided for the sofa bed there wouldn't be enough comfortable seating in the sitting room
That said we had a fantastic stay...
