Wonderful, relaxing holiday in the sun surrounded by trees

We spent a wonderful week here in June 2011 with our three young children. We are an Australian family, living in New York, and miss the open spaces and large backgardens we enjoyed back in Australia - this house was the perfect antidote, especially for our children, with an enormous flat garden with lush lawn, lovely gardens and a beautiful heated pool surrounded by pool chairs. The garden has a wonderful mix of shade and sun and is surrounded by woodland which makes you feel you are in a very secluded and special spot. The garden is completely enclosed, so is safe for families. We enjoyed many evening meals at the dining table out near the pool - there is also a grill available for use. The house is lovely - a very inspired and funky interior and well-equipped with all modern conveniences while retaining a real mid-century charm by retro furnishings. The house has a great stock of toys, board games and books to keep all occupied. The area around the house is very wooded and great for biking. There are lots of birds in the trees. The beaches at the Hamptons are great - most with wide expanses of fine white sand. The villages near the house are full of lovely restaurants/cafes and weekend farmer's markets/flea markets. There is plenty to explore in the area, or you can equally pass the days lazing in the house and garden. A very interesting yet relaxing holiday. We recommend the buttermilk fried chicken (Friday's only) at the Springs General Store (a one minute drive or 7 minute walk from the house)!
