The location, setting, spacious accommodation and unique experience of staying in a listed, period home. A warm and friendly welcome and thorough tour of the accommodation.
Mr Oxborough, Leicester, October 2012
The location and the apartment were great, what an awesome setting with beautiful architecture and gardens. And even when the weather turned cold the rooms were very warm which is surprising in a big house. We all had a lovely time.
Mrs Thomas, Aukland, September 2012
The apartment was a lot bigger than we anticipated. The location was stunning. The real peace and quiet of the environment. Very central to the places we wanted to explore.
Mr Scott, Canterbury, August 2012
A stunning property with lots of history! It has been in the present family for the last 800 years! There is a brilliant local pub just 10 minutes walk down the road.
