Good points
Lovely property in a beautiful, rural setting. A lot of thought has gone into making guests feel at home. Anne and Stuart were wonderfully welcoming hosts - particularly to our 3 and 5 year old boys.

Bad points
Because of the rural setting, we had to drive to get our morning croissants (but they were worth the 5 minute journey and often still warm when we got back!)
