    “It is a phenomenal property and we had a fantastic time.”

    We had 3 generations staying and all were equally impressed. Beds were great, bathrooms excellent and space was perfect. Garden also great. Downsides were that we felt we had to give the kitchen the once over when we got there as there were smears left by cleaners. I think everyone is heightened at this time but it was noticeable and something we wouldn't expect from somewhere so nice. Couple of residents freaked out by a number of mouse sightings if you can get on top of that! Proper BBQ would have been great.
