We had a lovely relaxing week at The Pound House. The pool was marvellous and the animals were friendly. The boys loved the table tennis. The owner left lovely goodies which is a nice touch.

We've just returned from a relaxing week at the pound house. The cottage was lovely and well laid out for a family of 5 . We didn't alway get the weather but still made great use of the pool which was probably the best part of the holiday for us . My kids also enjoyed having the peacocks coming to visit us . Would highly recommend the pound house .

Lovely cottage in a quiet location but not far from amenities. Good standard of furnishings and equipment. Excellent outside areas with the use of a lovely swimming pool.
