The farmhouse was ideal in every way for our extended family, lots of space both indoors and outdoors for everyone so we never felt on top of eachother. The place was immaculately clean and the facilities were excellent throughout. There were plenty of utensils, glasses and crockery and a wonderfully large dining room table for all the family to siRead moret around. The indoor tennis court and table tennis area were ideal to keep everyone amused! We would definitely use this place again. Hide

A lovely place for a large group. We had plenty of space to spread ourselves out. We loved the well kitted kitchen and dining area. And the indoor tennis court was amazing for the rainy days (and we had several).

We had a lovely family get together for which the house was perfect, set in a countryside location, with nice walks around the area. It had a lovely roaring fire in the lounge, and the central heating really made the house nice and cosy. There was plenty of room for all 13 of us around the table and plenty of crockery/cutlery and the 2 dishwashers Read morewere a great idea. I would recommend staying here. Hide
