Wonderfully peaceful location with plenty of interesting places to visit, within easy reach. The house was an excellent base for our group, and we were particularly lucky with the weather.

The house was in a pretty village and was perfect size and decor for what we needed. We were met on arrival by the owner, a lovely touch. Our whole party was thrilled with the house and we had a fantastic family weekend.

Booked via the owners website, so easy and the owner great to deal with. A great house, very comfortable and a large kitchen and dining room it made catering very easy. The down side was that the best views from the top of the garden were challenging to reach if you are mobility impaired. However there is adequate outside space at the lower level a sun trap outdoor seating area and conservatory. It is a very old house and the floors and steps also may be a challenge for wheelchair users however a ground floor bedroom is great for the less able. The oldness was very charming Such interesting pictures throughout the house that caused a lot of discussion I would definitely stay again
