    Great place to stay and as we had 2 cottages, we were able to hide from the family when necessary! The pool booking system worked well and the water was warm... Even managed some erratic tennis on Christmas Day. Father Christmas’ visit was a great hit with the 4 year old - nice touch.

    Excellent property with spa pool and great country location..



    out of 10

    We stayed in this former milking parlour that has been tastefully converted into an amazing holiday home with our children and grandchildren. Quiet, rural location with added attraction of a small indoor swimming pool. Very clean, comfortable, well equipped and child friendly with stairgates, cot, highchair, plastic cups, plates etc and a large fenced garden as well as an outdoor toddler play area and mini sports court. All rooms spacious and the open plan kitchen / living room with ample seating and a large dining table meant all the family could be together. Nice touches such as a pint of milk in the fridge on arrival, some toys and a selection of games. Many tourist attractions within 30-40 minutes driving range - very important with 4 children under 5!!

    We had a superb weekend with our family celebrating our ruby wedding at James Parlour.
