We had a wonderful time, thank you very much and really enjoyed being able to stay in your beautiful house. Despite all the stone, my daughter called it the "wooden house" because she was so impressed by how much reclaimed wood you had used - particularly in the bathroom, which she loved. In so far as feedback goes, all we lacked was a hair dryer and an ironing board (but my mother-in-law said the latter was my problem, not yours, because no sane person wants to iron on their holiday - I fear she is right but she didn't see my packing...). I do hope one day we might make a return visit!
First holiday abroad with a three year old, and we just wanted everything to be perfect and stress free, and we certainly weren't disappointed. What a totally stunning place this was. Everything was easy to arrange. Emma was easy to contact, nothing was too much bother. Everything we needed for a family holiday was there.....And it was just such a beautiful setting. There is so much to do locally, we did venture to the lakes to swim, but found that just staying in the garden and beautiful woods suited us just fine, with the odd trip down to the local bar. Can not recommend enough for a relaxing family holiday. Thank you for making our holiday so magical. We hope to be back soon.
