  • “The house was much more spacious than we had realised and so brilliantly equipped- everything we could possibly think of was in the kitchen.”

    Lacked in a nice outside space but did not affect our stay at all and would not stop us rebooking. Mortehoe was lovely and we were really lucky to have a week of glorious weather
