Guestbook comments from the owner
We are back from a fantastic weekend at Dawnchorus. Thanks to the weather we made good use of all the faciities and the kids really enjoyed kayaking from the lakeside. My dad was well celebrated to 8 although I'm afraid we did break one of your plain stemmed champagne flutes. Many thanks for letting our your home - a really lovely location
