We spent a week staying in The Presbytery - what a wonderful place! Stunning countryside, an excellent welcome package, everything worked smoothly and the house and garden were beautifully decorated and maintained. Great to be able to bring the dogs: they - and we - loved the open fires! Will definitely be back again.
