    Mature trees to give you a secluded feeling woods to walk in & we came across a wonderful red deer the children had a wonderful time looking at all the trees bugs berries & ferns. We had a BBQ one evening & sat outside while the sun went down. Fabulous open space for the children to play in a quite corner next to the woods to read. Bedroom living room kitchen bathrooms immaculate. Everything you could need in the kitchen. Wonderful fresh white bed linen on all the beds & white fluffy towels in both bathrooms. Not forgetting the terrific hot showers. Great table to eat around in the kitchen area. Area outside to put your wellies/walking boots to keep them dry.
