This property is wonderful, it gives the space our growing family needs inside and out, the wildlife is also superb, Barn Owls and Buzzards, and frogs are all a wonderful education for us and the children.

We loved the property and had a great week with all the family to celebrate a 70th birthday. The range of accommodation which was perfect for our family of twelve. Also the stylish interior and range of activities to occupy the grandchildren.
Overall excellent.

This cottage really exceeded our expectations.

We loved the amount of space for a large family and there was so much to do, both indoors and outdoors, with excellent outdoor space for our dogs.

It was a perfect property for a large family with dogs and teenagers.

So much to do, we had a lovely holiday and would definitely come back again.

Many thanks.
