  • "We had a wonderful stay at Knap Mill, amazing facilities for the 12 of us."

    The selection of DVDs and games was brilliant, the hot tub amazing to relax in with beautiful views and amazing outdoor lighting. We would of liked a clock in the Kitchen as we often lost track of time and shame there was only one TV downstairs for 12 of us, which was great for the kids though, one in the kitchen/lounge area would have been the icing on the cake for the adults. Penalty of toilet roll and cleaning products provided which was great, would off been nice to know as we brought some as well. Parking was also brilliant and better than expected, easy to fit our four cars with room for more. The house is amazing and the bar and pool table was great fun in the evenings. Thank you for a great holiday!
