AND SO MUCH TO DO...

"It was really lovely and we all enjoyed it very much - the various swings, toadstools and chestnuts were particularly popular with me and my youngest! The house has an extremely welcoming open feel and is also very comfortable. We were also lucky with the weather although the place was warm as toast even when the weather lapsed a bit."
