    Such a beautiful place to hold our spect birthday celebration. Three generations of family were catered for the grandchildren loved the hot tub and the games room as did the adults. The accommodation was lovely and spacious we all had plentiful room to slip off if we wanted to. We all loved the decor and attention to detail in every room. Our dogs Rico and Chico has great fun in the safe garden. The goodies left for us was a lovely touch and the chocolate brownies were the best we have ever had. All in all it was a very special week for us all.
