    Really great stay for 4 families - plenty room for everyone. We loved the large sitting room with bar and pool table especially and always a help to have a second sitting room. Warm welcome from the owners and the house had everything we needed. Great location too.

    Loved it, a family of 14 staying over Christmas. The old school made our Christmas really special, especially loved the hamper. We will definitely be booking again.
