ABSOLUTELY DIVINE!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best holidays my husband and myself and daughter, her husband and their 4 children have ever had!!!!!!!!

It was the most beautiful house ( my daughter wanted to buy it and live there) none of us wanted to go home!

Our 3 grandsons spent 5 days with NO COMPUTORS, INTERNET, HANDHELD MACHINES OR PHONES,,,,,,,,,they were all too busy cruising up and down the river in the kayak provided.As a result of this holiday, one grandson is getting his own kayak for christmas!!!

Susan and family could not have been any more helpful...NOTHING was too much trouble at all!!

The house is to die for...so inviting, clean and bright, I don't know how Susan keeps up all the hard work which obviously goes into the upkeep of this wonderful haven. Our 2 dogs were so exhausted after their holiday, they both slept for days afterwards.

Thankyou so so much for allowing us to take over your wonderful retreat fpr the few short days we had there.

We are hoping to make it an annual event with all our family...WE LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
