    “A fabulous property beautifully presented.”

    Very highly recommended. Children loved the cellar and made it their own. They did not want to leave and described it as 'best holiday ever' Likewise the 'well' feature is a clever and attractive concept. The only very minor problem was not taking a 2 to 3 pin plug converter as the en suite does not have a shaver socket so I could not charge my razor or electric toothbrush. OK for a short stay but not anything longer. Hope to return for another stay in the future.
