"Great stay at the house, really close to lots of nice walks and plenty of pubs. The dog loved running around in the garden, and we loved the log burner!"

"The house was immaculate throughout, and beautifully decorated. The beds were very comfortable, and we all slept well. On arrival we received a welcome hamper, with bread, milk etc which was very much appreciated. We had everything we needed at the house for our stay and we would certainly visit again."
