"Idyllic restored Manoir 5 stars. This house is just delightful, a gently restored much loved old manor surrounded by unspoilt countryside and much as it would have been a few hundred years ago, yet with all the things you hope to find (cupboard full of the things you might have forgotten, comfortable beds, huge baths, boiler that can easily cope). Our extended family gathering had space to spread out, wi-fi for the kids, acres for the dogs to run in, no lists of rules and regulations, we were totally charmed and would go back in an instant."
