My hubby & I went on your recommendation. The place itself was lovely. Only strange thing was the awkwardness of the owners. Being alone in the games room/living room was not fun. The owner was always watching us so we didn't feel we could relax in the common areas. I play the piano & asked if I could tinkle on their baby grand & was met with very uncertain 'I suppose so' followed by gis constabt supervision as I played (the cover was soon returned!) Also the owner didn't trust us to have our own DVD players in the rooms. He'd hooked up some elaborate mechanism where he had all the DVD players in a locked cabinet & they were hooked up to each room. If you wanted to watch something you had to pick it out, give it to him & call him when you were ready to watch. And there's no such thing as pausing for a toilet break- unless you wanted to ring the owner & make him aware of your bodily functions & ask him to pause the movie!!
The house was lovely, the gardens beautiful, food was yummy too... But some quirkiness with the owners. It left us with a story at least.
