The house is impeccable, chic and elegant. The approach to the house, the setting, the grounds, the neighborhood and the surrounding region is the absolute picturesque English countryside experience of renowed gardens, castles and natural beauty. We toured many historic properties in the area, bought lovely fresh produce in the region and cooked in the professional style kitchen which for me was a real plus. I can't wait to return and would recommend it also to sophisticated city dwellers (Londoners or New Yorkers, etc.) who want a peaceful, elegant vacation in the English countryside.
