    If you want ancient & quirky this is the place to stay, the house is huge with great atmosphere & easy to get lost in the kids loved it, great for hide & seek & Nerf gun fights ! We loved the pool & the hot tub, but it’s a shame it only fits 4. It was snowing when we were there but warm & cosy inside apart from the kitchen, which is huge ( the table seats 14 comfortably) so we lit fires in the kitchen & the lounge & were very cosy. If you go in winter take slippers, the stone flagged floors are freezing, a torch, the electricity went off 3 times when we were there, towels for the pool, the pieces of acrylic cloth provided were horrible to use & didn’t do the job & fire lighters. Wood isn’t provided but the farm at the end of the entrance on the left as you go out, sells it. We had a fantastic holiday there an experience to remember. Top tips – allocate the bedrooms & don’t let the kids choose as the room with the upstairs beds isn’t very adult friendly ! Order a food delivery from the Co-op it's free if you spend over £25. There's no welcome pack when you arrive apart from for the dogs, they got chews & poo bags. We had an Indian from the Shalimar but it wasn't very good - very oily There's lots of beautiful walks, I did my 1K steps every day ! Enjoy.
