    The location - it was bang in the middle of our long journey to Wales and was in a peaceful village with hardly any passing traffic or other noise. The bedroom was very comfortable and the hosts were especially kind, making sure we had everything...

Host Information

Host review score

The house has been in the family for over 100 years and is a remaining part of a deserted medieval village. The 2 lakes, the wildlife and beautiful countryside make it an idyllic place to stay.
I love animals and especially horses. I am passionate about making sure that my horses enjoy being with me as much as I enjoy being with them.
South Northamptonshire has been voted 3rd best County in the country to live in and is a bit like the Cotswolds without the tourists! We are central for many attractions to suit all age groups and needs as well as perfect for business travellers.
