16/10/20 – 23/10/20

This place is perfect! Amazing, exciting, huge house in the most stunning grounds, so fabulously equipped and completely clean. Also warm and welcoming. As far as the hot tub….! Dave and Roz, you do this in the most fabulous way – leaving so much stuff for us here, helping with the hot tub etc. but leaving us alone. Again, perfect. We’ve had a truly wonderful time. A big thank you.

‘Golden 10 Days’

23/07/20 – 03/08/20

What a golden 10 days. We were between 8 – 20 people including children having a glorious time reveling in the beauty of the gardens, the hot tub, the lovely house, the space and the great welcome of Dave, Roz and all. Thank you for a golden memory amid such a difficult period – an oasis. We’ll be back, I hope!
