    “This was a wonderful place for a multigenerational family holiday.”

    The four boys and dad and grandad played football in the garden for hours. The four dogs thought they were in heaven in the secure garden. Nanny elderly aunt mummy and baby all mucked in with the cooking etc. It was a really lovely family holiday.
