Chesters have been managing The Spinney for a number of years and the property is fully booked in the summer. A number of guests have returned and the feed back has been tremendous. The owners of the property are very keen to make their guests stay as pleasant as possible and do visit the property in the beginning for a welcome meeting. On this occasions they did visit on more then one occasion to attend to the pool and found some damage had occurred.
