We (an extended family ranging from 18 months to 72 years, plus two dogs) were looking for a special property for a long weekend in which to celebrate a Golden Wedding anniversary. We found Gray Manes, and we are so glad that we did! Communication was excellent from the word go (a year in advance in this case), loads of helpful information, nothing was too much trouble, Tanya even suggested we sent decorations ahead which were put up ahead of our arrival. Chris was there to meet us and show us around, i was instantly impressed, they really have thought of everything.
The property is beautiful, very tastefully decorated, and incredibly well-equipped with everything we could think of. Brilliant games room and pool, huge garden with play area - we had no reason to leave. Each bedroom has either an en-suite or its own private bathroom. Fresh flowers everywhere, a welcome basket containing local eggs, jam and cake among other goodies, and even a decorated celebration cake! We sat 16 very comfortably for meals, and used a local caterer who stocked the fridge with home-cooked meals (as chosen in advance from her extensive menu) for our celebration meal - we just had to put the oven on and put the food in - and it was delicious.
I have stayed in numerous self-catering properties of varying sizes over the years, and this really is up there with the very best. Highly recommended.
