Mick and Jan could not have done more to make our stay a truely memorable holiday. The accomodation is fantastic - everything you could possible need was there. The play room is a triumph if you have children. The grounds are fabulous and along with the free access to fresh chicken eggs and produce from the garden we also ate very well too!
This has been one of the most relaxing holidays I have been on - thank you!

"Everything you could dream of and more besides"
Rob, Lisa, Linda, Melvin, Izzy and Evie of Staffordshire - we had an absolutely wonderful week in a beautiful house which had everything we needed and more. Our 4 year old twins loved the playroom, pool and feeding the chickens, while we adults loved the fabulous standard of the house, the peace and quiet and the space. Many thanks to Jan and Mick for your hospitality and making us all feel so much at home. Best wishes with your barn project and we definitely intend to revisit in the future to see the fruits of your labours. Love from us all x
