Our son loved the Piano, and we loved the open fire, the best fire we have had in properties we have hired.
Very much - this was a trip down memory lane for me and and my mother. My grandmother had been housekeeper to admiral egerton at the Manor house in the 1960s before it was sold and converted into flats. Although it has clearly changed a lot from the memories we have of the house it was lovely to be back there and remember how it was way back then. The house is beautifully decorated and furnished, very comfortable and well equipped. We would definitely like to return in the future.
We had a very enjoyable relaxing week the accommodation was excellent with just the above comments
