It has a nice cozy home from home feel. Property is set within a court yard with off road parking and the property's garden is well maintained also has a Lovely summer house and hot tub which were an added bonus !! Only down side really were the roads to the property which were very narrow and a bit of a problem if you meet any oncoming traffic and are not really suitable to walk on especially with young children and also the nearest shop we could find was 15 - 20 mins away by car, so you do need to plan ahead !! We spent our week visiting various places including The Monkey Forrest, Drayton manor was a great day out our little boy loved Thomas land and didn't want to leave also we hire a canal boat for the day from Anglo. Welsh at near by great Haywood all of these places were within easy travel distance Drayton manor being the furthest away ( about 50 mins )
