Fantastic home from home (with bells on!)
Posted by Anon User on 28/11/2012

We stayed recently with a large family group. The house is really comfortable and feels like a proper family home (with bells on!). Everything you could possibly need is there. Of particular note are the comfortable beds and bedlinen. Having done a few large trips with family to villas with terrible beds, it was a relief to find we were going to get a good nights sleep. The grounds are very safe for young children as you can easily shut the gate to the pool area and the rest of the grounds are walled and behind an electric gate. The location is very rural and quiet, but within easy reach of supermarkets and towns, which suited us. The house is large with lots of different sleeping options so you a few families can go together. The owner and manager are very helpful and were just a phone call away to ensure our stay was going well. Highly recommend this manoir. We would love to go again.
