Orchard Farmhouse was a cosy place to celebrate a 70th birthday, with plenty of room for 4 children and lots for them to do. The grounds of the estate are stunning and we all enjoyed a morning stroll in the sunshine

This is the perfect place for a get-together. Beautiful surroundings, lovely scenery, everything you could possibly need, all with tonnes of character. Tim is a great host and communication is fabulous.
