"Fantastic facilities, lovely homely accomodation, great holiday."

My 3 brothers and partners and me and hubby all met up in September for a weeks holiday. This is difficult as I am wheelchair bound and need a hoist. We bought or own hoist and the disabled friendly room with wet room shower, was fantastic. The whole of the downstairs was easily accessable as well as being homely and comfortable with ample roomy seating for all 8 of us. My Hubby said the upstairs was fab too, and the garden was a sun trap. Special touches like fresh flowers and house plants made the atmosphere homely and comfortable.
So good, we are already booked for 2013.

"Perfect family holiday in a beautiful location"

We stayed here in November with my children who are 22,23 and 26 along with grandparents too! We had such a wonderful stay, the house is plenty big enough to escape for peace when you want it but also to cosy up next to the log fire together. We could not recommend this lovely holiday more. We have been twice now and have loved it both times. The decor is beautiful and everything is done to such a high standard!

Jane, the lady who owns the property is attentive, warm and helpful! We will definitely be returning again!

You will not be disappointed with your stay!
