I simply don't have the words to express what a wonderful experience this was for my family. My husband and I, along with our 10 year old son and 7 year old daughter, spent a week at the manor house. It was, hands down, the best family vacation we have ever had.
The house itself is beautiful and the grounds were luxurious even in early spring. To a certain extent we were expecting this based on the photographs we'd seen before we arrived. The real surprise, however, were Carole and Kevin. They were far more welcoming and gracious than we ever could have imagined. They were our hosts, tour guides, historians, and, by the end of the week, our friends.
