"childrens paradise!"

We stayed here with our two young children and found plenty to do. Roger and his family are friendly and professional and made us feel very welcome. Nothing was too much for them. They are very family friendly and our children were able to play together which was a real treat. The house is lovely and we would recomend a walk to their local river for a paddle. Socks the sheep is adorable and will suck your finger if you let him. There is plenty to do in the surrounding area. there is a local walk centered on Monets paintings, as the impressionist movement started in this area. Thank you to the Pick/ Habberjam family who made our stay truly memorable!
