"Wonderful, all we could ask for."

Wonderful, all we could ask for. Quiet and comfortable, equipped with everything anyone would want. Graham was an excellent host, living next door, always ready to answer questions. There were flocks of finches and coaltits as well as woodpeckers, doves etc. Pheasants, ducks red squirrels and rabbits wandered around the garden, and deer were present in the adjacent woods. Country living at its best, yet only seven miles from town. Highly recommended.
