Thank you for providing us with such a wonderful place to stay. The attention to detail was beyond any place that we have ever stayed in. The variety of activities for the kids meant that they didn’t even miss the TV. The cosy fire with marshmallows toasting made it a perfect country retreat, perfect for recharging the batteries and escaping the buzz of the city.
