    5/5 Excellent


    Great house. The weather was perfect so we were outside most of the time though. Loads to do if the weathers not quite so good. Lovely and clean. Paul and Sam were brilliant I will definitely be returning

    5/5 Excellent

    Spacious but homely

    Fabulous grand house that offers comfort and space all in one. We rented this house for a company meeting and it served its purpose. We held our meeting in the cinema and our breakout sessions in the lounges and kitchen. Bedrooms and bathrooms were amazing although one was out of order which caused a bit of chaos in the morning scheduling showers etc. All in all a great alternative to a hotel and we will be looking to come back.
