We had a wonderful stay in the Summerhouse. So good, we booked another stay while we were still there.
The house is very clean, spacious, light and comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and our 8 and 10 year old children loved the swing on the tree outside the front of the house and taking walks around the lake. A family of swans with 8 signets kept us company all week and we also saw hares, a fawn and enjoyed the sounds of the sheep, pheasant cockerel and chickens. Absolutely no traffic noise!
Geoff who lives near by was very helpful and friendly and we enjoyed seeing him feed the swans.
You do need to be very careful on the uneven road surface to the house if you have a car low to the ground as it’s very easy to scrape the bottom of a car.
We are so pleased to have found this haven and look forward to coming again.
This house is fantastic for a quiet, relaxing weekend away. It is set in the most beautiful location, it was spotless, it had everything we needed and the views over the lake (whilst having your morning coffee) just really topped it off!
Katharine, the host, was great from start to finish. She responded promptly and even kindly kept us in the loop when covid restrictions changed throughout our booking.
If you want a break away that is surrounded by nature and hills, to walk for miles, then this is the perfect place to come back to and enjoy a red wine in front of the log fire.
We can’t wait to return in the future.
Thanks for a fabulous stay!
