We all had a great time and would highly recommend this property. The house is lovely and the pool area is superb. We went down to the bar each night for aperitifs which is basically at the end of the garden then be back for bbq's by the pool. We have rebooked for next year 10/10.


We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed exploring the area. The pool is great and the kids really enjoyed it. We were 8 adults and 8 children and there was ample space. We will be back for sure!


We all had a great time at this property and an exceptional break was had by all. The pool was thoroughly enjoyed with the great weather by everyone and got a lot of use. Some great local restaurants and plenty to do in the forest. We will be back next year. Many thanks to Matt and Em from who were always on hand and extremely professional from the first enquiry.
