Wedding from hell

We was traped for a big family wedding. I needed my own breathing space from my family. It was perfect. Lovely garden plenty of room for my kids and Toys for them to play with. We got there late. The lady didn't mind at all. The heaters was on for us. Its walking distance to the shops and the atm. So hard to find nice clean kid/animal frendly places. My partner said he could live there. 'He also wanted a shovel to take the garden'.

Pros: Relaxing Victorian interior, sitting out on the back porch having breakfast, organic bathroom amenities, spotlessly clean, fresh produce in kitchen.
Cons: Nothing - overall we were very impressed and will definitely go back.
Location: Away from it all
Facilities: Outstanding; Value: Great deal; Service: Flawless; Cleanliness: Gleaming; There is a tree top adventure park next door which you can see through the screen trees. You can hear the commotion from about 9am but wasn't annoying
