"Perfect for a relaxing break"

We went there for a family break, and had a really lovely time. It was 8 of us and the house was large enough to accommodate all of us easily, and it was nice that all bedrooms were ensuite. The house is truly stunning and set in a very secluded and beautiful spot. It is also very well equipped, including the hot tub which proved a hit with some of the party!

Can definitely recommend!!
