"Content in Chilton"

We, myself with wife and two children, had a comfortable week in Chilton apartments with overnight stays by my brother and parents. The facilities were just as advertised and Sheila proved a perfect charmer providing all we needed in terms of information, background stories and professional management of a special place that is clearly close to her heart.

My only hesitation in writing so glowing a review is to make it difficult to book this rare place in future.
