"Excellent accommodation, much bigger than expected - new games room with snooker table an excellent addition. Lovely and warm with underfloor heating & log fire. 4 bedrooms , all good size. Fantastic garden for dogs with pheasant running around happily also. Wifi a bit intermittent but not big issue. Overall , superb."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2017-03-10
