Meanwhile, another added: "The house and pool were stunning. We chose a beautiful weekend in September and were able to make full use of the amazing pool. The pool area was in full sunshine but there was plenty of umbrellas for shade if needed.

"There is a lovely mature garden at the back with plenty of both sunshine and shady areas.

"Having our own pub in the garden was just brilliant and we made good use of this area, even hosting our own pub quiz night!
