Thank you so much, I meant to call you when we were leaving. The house was beautiful and surpassed all of our expectations, we had a lovely time and it was a great way to bring in 2012. I would also like to say that everyone was in awe of the kitchen and all wanted to take it home. Very tastefully done and brilliant facilities for all budding chefs!
My friends and I all loved the house and were thinking of booking it up in September or May. Thank you so much for giving us a great venue to bring in the new year and end the festive season. I hope I get to stay in your lovely house again soon too!

I just wanted to say thank you again for our stay in your beautiful house. We had such a lovely time and the kids went mad running up one staircase and down the other hiding from the adults! The house has been decorated so beautifully...I hope we didn't leave it in too much of a mess.
Thank you again and we hope to be able to stay again.
