Hello Keith and Eileen

I am writing to you, belatedly, to thank you for your kind hospitality when we stayed at the Manior. I really enjoyed our fishing chats and appreciated you sharing your experiences of living in France. J and I have put this on our list of considerations for the future.

We had a great time at the property..Thegarden was great forour two small grandchildren

  • 4 of 5

The house was very well prepared for us .There were lots of toys inside and out and the grandchildren had a wonderful time in the garden.

Most of the rooms were very comfortable and well equipped.We were however. Concerned that there had been no warning about the very low height of the beams and the doors on the two attic bedrooms.Along with very steep stairs these rooms were not comfortable for the family using them.

We were made very welcome and had good holiday but we would not have chosen the property if we had known about the attic rooms.

Owner's Response: Comments concerning the top floor are surprising as the photos clearly show what they are like and without exception , all previous guests have loved them. Had we been advised at the time of booking that the couple for the top floor included one who was pregnant we could have given more advice , but the person who made the booking and gave this review was very elusive and did not respond to our emails or telephone messages. Nice meeting you and your family Kind regards Eileen and Keith

Beautiful property, amazing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here as a family of 5 and absolutely loved it. The house and the grounds were amazing, but have to say the garden made it. The kids were out playing cricket on the expansive lawn everyday, and the pool was perfect for us. We had a very comfortable stay, and Eileen & Keith were more than helpful. We enjoyed mixed weather, from blazing sunshine to stunning thunder & lightning. When the rain came we played the board games and enjoyed using the kitchen facilities to cook. When the weather was good we ate outside in the various different spots, my favourite being at the top of the garden as the sun went down. The kids adored the tree houses and for the week we were there, there was more than enough for us to do locally without travelling far. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, thank you Eileen and Keith!

This is a fantastic property for exploring the area with many beautiful medieval towns and villages to see. The accommodation is fantastic and extremely spacious all with en suite facilities. The site is minutes away from two great patisseries and a small supermarket which we used everyday. Eileen and Keith are an added bonus, there if you need them but equally discreet, if you don't. We ourselves much appreciated their recommendations. The pool was superb and the weather was so good we were in there every day. This is a great holiday property with really good facilities and great hosts. Thanks again, Keith and Eileen we had a really great time!

Amazing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Having just spent a wonderful week at this house all I can say is we had an AMAZING time.

Nine of us stayed here four adults and five children (age range 9 - 15). All our needs were met and the accommodation made it very special. The children loved having the top floor to them selves and the adults loved the fact we were left in peace!!

The house was huge and the garden is beautiful the photos really don't do this property the justice it deserves. Although not the hottest of days the children still braved the pool,adults not so brave!

Location was rural but not remote village a 5 minute drive away , if you don't get lost!! Ask Keith he rescued us.

Eileen and Keith are a wealth of knowledge regarding local information, restaurants and activities.

Nothing was to much bother for them and having them on site gave us the reassurance that somebody knew the local area and language should we need help, making our stay even more special.

I would recommend this property in a flash and really do hope to return.

Thank you Eileen and Keith.
