“We thought the property was great, ...”We thought the property was great, and the wine and cream tea on arrival were a lovely surprise. The house was beautifully presented and clean, and we had a wonderful week as a family together. Only minor gripes were that the light in the study wasn't working, the chair at the desk in the study didn't really work with the desk, and one of the lights over the dining table had no bulb in it. Overall, though, it was a great venue for a family holiday.
