    “The carriage is situated in a really peaceful location.”

    It's a quaint home from home. We were really sad to leave. Had a fabulous week there. Travelled to local places most days. we had frequent visits from deers pheasants wild hare and grouse . Saw buzzards, red kites. The owners are really friendly can't do enough for you. Provided us with a nice welcome pack. Can't wait to go back.
