Property is set in a remote location, set in some fantastic grounds, with a small lake about 15-20min walk from the house Stayed for 3 nights, beds were great, found it was easier to take a bath in the ensuites, rather than a shower. Kitchen had everything you needed. Table tennis was an added bonus. Mixture of Jigsaws and board games also suppliedRead more. The entire place was really clean, we used the BBQ on one afternoon, we brought our own coal and firelighters. Hope :-) to come back to Hope House. Hide

What a spectacular house and grounds. There was lots of space for 5 of us and two large dogs. Its such a peaceful location, very relaxing. The table tennis table was a great addition, and we did a few puzzles too from the well equipped games room.
