All our guests say this is an amazing place. The local pubs are full of charm and characters, the pizzeria is just brilliant, the hotel is friendly and serves great pub grub, the place is so well kept and the parks are just great - treat of the day for children. The house has a giant size garden for football and running, and a giant size rock that children love to climb on. If you are lucky, you can wake to a field of deer or find a "just-born" rabbit like some of our guests have done...You can walk to the park and the pub, and cook on the huge barbeque and make full use of the the fully equipped kitchen.
You have a choice of car hire, or hire of local transport at reasonable rates for your day trips.

About the Host, Elizabeth
I am one of a large extended family. The house is used by family a lot, but we love to share it with others who can enjoy a great place together just like we do! It is ideal for family get-togethers, with great communal space and five bedrooms well-spread out! There is also a cool Diner living room that younger guests love to hang out in, away from the adults...The garden, surround decking and giant barbeque are brilliant for lazy days together - we have so many happy memories of doing just that.
