“A fabulous house in a most peaceful setting.”
Reviewed 20 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We spent a most enjoyable and relaxing Bank Holiday family week-end in this beautifully renovated house with high quality features throughout. The grandchildren loved feeding the horse, watching the lambs, playing tennis and swing-ball. The adults enjoyed their leisure time, the relaxing hot tub and the peaceful surroundings. Topped off with perfect weather it could not have been bettered.
The owners were so helpful and kind during our stay providing a warm welcome on arrival, assistance when needed and many delightful extras for us to enjoy.

“Perfect house and perfect location.”
Reviewed 1 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We stayed in the house as a party of 11, six adults and five children. The house had absolutely everything we needed (and more!), the location is beautiful and the owners are very friendly and helpful. Lots of outdoor space for the children to play safely and the hot tub was a success with everybody! I absolutely recommend it. We can't wait to go back.

“Wow - what a marvellous place to stay - truly lives up to it's 5* rating”
Reviewed 30 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We stayed as a family of 11 with ages ranging from 4 years old to 60+ and I can only say that each and every one of us had a fabulous time. We were celebrating my daughters 40th birthday and the welcome we received was second to none. The welcome back was so comprehensive with excellent quaity food and drink including a bottle of Moet. There was even a beautiful home made carrot cake that was to die for!!
The house and grounds have to be seen to be believed - everything about it was first class with the kitchen being totally equipped with John Lewis and M&S crockery, the bedding was all beautiful crisp white linen with wonderful fluffy robes and towels and even towels for the hot tub. Ahh - the hot tub! What fun we had with the whole family playing games and singing songs with the children. The tennis courts were also very popular as was the croquet and other outdoor games provided. In fact there was nothing that was overlooked in providing something for everyone whether it be indoors or outdoors. Diane and Bill were extremely kind and helpful and made us all feel so welcome but also that we had the privacy we wanted.
I cannot recommend this beautiful place highly enough and would certainly be looking to return but next time it would be for longer to be able to fully enjoy and the excellent facilities both indoors and outside

“The perfect home for a really special family party”
Reviewed 29 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

What a wonderful home. We were made to feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble for the owners. They offered lots of advice and support to ensure everyone had a relaxing weekend. Great-Grandma (aged 94) enjoyed the relaxing lounges, plush sofas and warm room as much as the children (the youngest being 18 months) enjoyed the toy and book cupboard and all the outdoor space (and more toys!). The fact that the lambs came right up to the garden fence just made the children's weekend complete! The kitchen is well equiped for self catering and the long dining table and plenty of chairs meant the whole family could eat togther. The hot tub was a perfect way to end our perfect days.

We stayed here recently with family and were really delighted with the property. It certainly lives up to the photos displayed on the website. Tennis court, hot tub, lots of family games to enjoy and a gorgeous home-made chocolate cake to enjoy on arrival! Will definitely return!
