This is the house we all wish our friends had in the country – welcoming, warm and comfortable, where we can behave just as if we were home. It serves the food we love, when we want it, it has a special Little House for our children to play in and a Cowshed Spa in which we can play. It has a cinema and acres of gardens and grounds, which is why it is so difficult to leave.
Travel Secrets from Jules
Are you a frazzled parent who needs to breathe just for a moment? Check your little ones into Little House and have them entertained all day while you moo contentedly in the Cowshed and drift off to sleep. Inventive, fun staff so your kids will love it. Superb sanity check.
