“This is the third time our family have holidayed together at this lovely old house.”
It feels like home from home. Our four grandchildren aged 3-8 all love the snug for tv, the conservatory for drawing and tabletop activities and best of all the safe outside space for riding bikes and scooters. As for the rest of the family, the seven adults, we adore the proximity to the Moors for walking, biking and the Royal Oak for food and local ales. The position of the property is peaceful and secluded and particularly gorgeous in Autumn. Inside the house is spacious, comfortable and because it is unfussy we all find it very relaxing. Would we come back? We certainly hope to.....
