    Beautiful house great tennis court and sports “ hut “ some of the dishes were dirty and two pots all had to be washed by hand also an egg cup still had some shell in it so slightly disappointed in that especially in these uncertain times where cleanliness is paramount

  • "The house is a great place to stay if you want to be away from it all."

    A very relaxing and beautiful location. You are a 15 to 20 minute drive from the local shops and about an hour from the nearest supermarkets, but that didn't spoil our stay. Great scenery, great location, excellent facilities and very dog friendly.

  • "This is a fabulous grand but comfortable country house which easily accommodated two families."

    Stunning setting & excellent facilities including a very well maintained tennis court which was well used. The house was bright & spacious, & the grounds safe to let the dogs wander outside. The best holiday home we’ve been to - would highly recommend, & will definitely return.
