“A lovely family base”
Reviewed 25 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed as a group of ten, six adults and four children under eight. All the accommodation is a really good size, bright and well maintained. The kitchen is lovely but the "high spec" appliances aren't really. The oven took forever on the night we attempted to use it and the American fridge with filtered water and ice make wasn't actually plumbed in. The bathroom is lovely and in keeping so all in all perfectly acceptable. Now the negatives. We had three family sized cars. Getting through the opening and then on the drive is a work of art and requires a confident driver but can be done. And finally, as we travelled in late August this home cost us well over two thousand pounds for a week, for this money we expected to be able to treat it as ours, no all night parties but the kids could play before we went on our excursions. What we didn't expect, and helpfully excluded from the description, is the person who lives in the secret flat underneath, go figure, knocking on the door saying the children were making too much noise (in the morning) and scaring their dog!!! I still would recommend, it's a perfect location, and lovely house, just don't take toy cars to be driven across the wooden floors!
