THE PERFECT ESCAPE FOR YOUNG AND OLD by Mrs Berry, Harrogate, July 2015 on October 5th 2016
An absolutely beautiful property, the 5 star rating did not disappoint. It was luxurious yet comfortable, thoughtfully and stunningly equipped and decorated. Wonderful for 16 people to sit and eat together in the fantastic kitchen/diner and the gorgeous sitting rooms, yet there was space for those who wanted to escape to cosy quiet areas also. Had a great pool and games room. A perfect escape enjoyed by young and old.

Georgeous, Stunning and Amazed! by Mrs Coake, Liverpool, April 2016 on October 5th 2016
We were all thrilled and amazed by every aspect of the house and grounds as well as the constant support given by the owner. The pool was used at least once every day. It seemed that everything had been considered and catered for in advance. The surrounding countryside is also stunning with so many walking tracks and a gorgeous pub within walking distance.
