We stayed here as a family of 5 and had a lovely time. When we first got to the house we were shown around and given some tips on the best places to visit locally. We visited The Rousdon Bakery which is just on the other side of the road to the main entrance of the estate. It’s great for breakfast and the coffee is amazing.
The children enjoyed staying here, with lots of outdoor space to roam and lots to do, including the estates’ private beach which is a in walking distance from Billiard House.
The house was beautiful. It was more beautiful than the photos and had everything we needed for our stay. The little touches were helpful, including the Nespresso pods which were provided. The fresh flowers were thoughtful too.
Overall we had a great time and we will definitely be back! Thank you
