Guest Book Comments

The house itself was truly beautiful, felt really quirky. However the outdoor space was a bit neglected. Whilst described as having borders filled with magnolias in reality the borders were overgrown with weeds and in need of a good cut back. The 10 acres that were advertised were not accessible, gate was shut with barbed wire and was rented out for someone for their horses. Private wooded garden also needed cutting back and it was obvious that the horses had been in there and left some manure. Lovely house in a beautiful location. Scenery was spectacular just need a gardener for a couple of days.

A trusted customer - 30th August 2018

The house was very spacious for the 6 of us that stayed. It was in a beautiful setting. The decoration was lovely. It had everything we needed for a week away. Would love to stay again.
