Stunning setting and a perfect house.
We rented this home, along with the one next door, for a family gathering of 10 adults and eight children. The drive to the homes in itself was stunning - we hadn't realised quite how stunning the scenery and setting would be. On arrival, we were delighted with what we found. We had worried before arrival that the houses would be sufficiently stocked with enough towels, good linen and enough kitchen equipment for us all, and there had been no cause for concern. Everything we could possibly have needed was supplied, including dish washer tablets. A Sainsbury's online order was placed to arrive an hour after us, which it duly did. I understand other renters also do the same. The communication we received from the owner before our stay was great, quick responses and detailed ones too. The owner was there to meet us, and lives next door, however, the entrance to the holiday homes faces away from their home, which offers perfect privacy. It was great having the owner on site, especially for information about the area, and the odd pan scourer! The surrounding area is stunning - perfect for walking and the river a few minutes walk away provided hours of entertainment for children who wanted to paddle and swim. We really can't rate this home highly enough, and are returning at the earliest opportunity for a week rather than a long weekend. We were also really impressed with the guest information given in the houses - and of huge interest was the journey undertaken by the owners to restore what was derelict barns to these two beautiful homes. Well done - it was lovely to see old materials all being restored and reused to rebuild the property - and the end result is magnificent. The only word of advice we would offer is to bring mosquito repellent/plugs during the summer months, as the proximity of a small stream at the end of the houses, and the river nearby did make for rather a number of them around at night, but this really did not spoil the experience in any way - just a little thing to remember if you are likely to be bothered by them.
