    I don't normally make time to post reviews but feel compelled to highly recommend this place. I am also very grateful for the time taken by other people who gave their positive reviews, which I agree with wholeheartedly.

    I don't normally make time to post reviews but feel compelled to highly recommend this place. I am also very grateful for the time taken by other people who gave their positive reviews, which I agree with wholeheartedly. Moreover, I was not surprised to see that their 'Guest Book' had been filled with lovely comments from other families - we had a fabulous time! We were given a warm welcome by the owners, whom we found to be genuinely friendly and very helpful. Grant and Nicola were also very respectful and completely unobtrusive, plus we had absolutely no issue with the deposit. Indeed, what with 4 'lively' kids with us, it's quite a feat to NOT inflict some damage - which did happen - but Grant & Nicola were totally cool and more than reasonable about it. As for the place itself...quality! Very clean, modern and spacious enough for 2 families, with inspirational views all around. Plenty of kids games for rainy days and even a Sky package! The Wi-Fi was generally great throughout the week, especially considering the location, with photos being constantly uploaded and shared. As for the overall location, I couldn't recommend this highly enough as "an easy" stay for families, as it has everything that's great about England: nearby parks, beautiful nature walks and woodlands, steam trains and museums, safari & leisure park, farms, etc. The necessary supermarkets are less than 10 minutes away and do online deliveries. Planning our days was made even easier as Grant & Nicola had a very organised collection of leaflets re: the local attractions. All in all, everything we wished for and more!
