    We had a lovely relaxing time. Perfect for people who want to relax and just enjoy the countryside. You do have to drive everywhere so not for those that need everything on the doorstep. You have to be organised as nearest supermarket is a 5 mile drive. I loved having all the countryside around and the wildlife. There were lots of birds. I am sure in the summer it would be fab.
