A great place
Perfect accommodation we had an amazing time, the open plan living was great, the bedrooms are all good sizes and the corner bath was a treat. Our enclosed garden and patio was huge, so the kids could play safely. Facilities a total bonus, great game of family footy and fun in the pool. A great place

Fantastic Holiday House
September 18th 2020
James's Parlour is a FANTASTIC Holiday House. Perfect for our group. Plenty of space, very well equipped (which pleased my wife as she was cooking for us) The corner bath went down well too!!! We all felt safe as the cleanliness was of a very high standard and the fact the owners were also fogging the house before our arrival added to us being able to relax. The facilities are shared but the booking systems in place work really well, so we enjoyed swimming, football and our younger members loved the toddler area with all its ride on toys, especially the tractors. It was a few days of normal in a time when life is pretty tough, but the owners had made sure there was hand gel and notices just to keep everyone safe, would recommend!!
