Amazing. this house is fantastically equipped and easily deals with full occupancy. the setting is stunning and the gardens and surrounds are sympathetically immaculate. the kitchen is a dream to work and be in, all the rooms were immaculate yet welcoming on arrival. we had a mixed age group our youngest being 1 and the eldest in their retirement and it was great for all. would definitely recommend to friends and colleagues and sincerely hope we can return next year.
