    • “Wij (gezin met 2 kinderen) hebben begin augustus 5 dagen in het Stargazer's Field House doorgebracht en hebben het erg naar ons zin gehad. het appartement is zeer schoon en biedt voldoende ruimte aan een gezin met 2 of 3 kinderen. Er kan gebruik worden gemaakt van de ruime tuin en het appartement beschikt over een gezellig terras met een mooi uitzicht over de velden. De keuken is goed voorzien van alle gemakken (Oven/grill, waterkoker, magnetron, ruime koelkast met vriesgedeelte). De badkamer is ruim en beschikt over zowel een douche als bad. Er is free WiFi beschikbaar en op het terras staat een mooie BBQ waar gebruik van kan worden gemaakt.”
