- Very Good
Family members ranging from 1 yr to late 50's thoroughly enjoyed staying in this beautifully appointed house... the photos dont do it justice! Plenty of room for the various generations to spread out and relax or congregate for family time as desired....and ideally placed between 2 popular theme parks, lots of lovely pubs to enjoy also or cook for your family in the well equipped kitchen. Would definitely stay here again :)
