"What an amazing week we have had! This has been the best holiday we have been to for family bonding. The barn is absolutely perfect with an amazing swimming pool that is warm, a fantastic hot tub with great views, not forgetting the tennis court and beautiful gardens. We loved using the BBQ which was quick to set up and the kitchen was fully equipped to cook amazing dinners.Thank you."
