Beautiful home and surroundings. A must stay.
Eveything about this property is magical. As you descend up the tree lined driveway you know this place is going to be special. The house on arrival is stunning. Exactly what you see in the pictures, but so much better. The house is light and airy and had plenty of room for the 15 people in our party. It was wonderful to all be able to sit and eat together. So spacious! People can go off and do their own thing (if at times you need a 'time out').
The pool area is a great size with sun loungers and the pool was perfect. We had every pool inflatable imaginable and it took all of them with room for more!
Every evening we ate alfresco with a great BBQ at our disposal.
The kitchen is also fully equipped and we made use of this!
The house and surroundings are laid out perfectly and what I loved is that every day you discovered something new; a cupboard full of games, or a drawer full of maps for things to explore.
The games room was a god send for the children (mainly the adults).
The countryside is beautiful and amazing for quiet country walks.
Mike and Emma (the guardians) were incredibly warm and welcoming and looked after us extremely well without being intrusive and were on hand if we needed them.
Booking the house was a simple process and always received timely communications from the owner
This house is remote and you will need a car. Supermarkets are 10-15 minutes away.
Every one of our party adored this house and it has given us a lifetime of very fine memories.
This beautiful property has absolutely everything that you would want for the perfect holiday. It is large and spacious with a fantastic games room, heated pool and amazing gardens. The area is so peaceful and the surrounding countryside just so picturesque. There is plenty to do in the area too, with restaurants and supermarkets a convenient short drive away. All in all a perfect holiday destination for families and friends.
Amazing week had by all!
We were a group of four families with six children between us, aged 4 months to nearly 3 years! I was initially worried the house may not have been big enough for us all but was very wrong! The photos don't do it justice, it's huge!! It would have comfortably fitted another family!
We all loved the pool and gorgeous gardens, the kitchen was perfectly equipped for us all and we were provided with a baby monitor and steriliser. The house far exceeded our expectations.
Emma and Mike are the 'caretakers' who live on site. They are really friendly and helpful (Mike fixed our buggy wheel) and don't intrude on you at all.
The house is quite remote which was perfect for us allowing us to hire bikes and go running to explore. It's out of the way and incredibly peaceful.
It was a huge bonus that the pool area is fenced off so there was no worry of the children around the water.
We made the most of the outdoor seating area and BBQ and the gamesroom was an added bonus.
Thank you for our amazing holiday, we will hopefully return next year!
Beautiful House with all you need
We were a party of 17 ages ranged from 18 months to 73.
The house was fantastic with plenty of space inside and out to accommodate everyone's needs. The young people made full use of the games room and the huge garden with badminton court.
The pool is gorgeous and kept scrupulously clean.
We were extremely lucky and had perfect summer weather and ate outside for all meals.
Two things I would improve if I was being picky
The Bbq is great but where it is is directly in the sun and the poor bbq chef was melting it could do with being moved to a shadier area.
Outside lights for the garden terrace would have further enhanced the outdoor eating in the evenings. The romance of candles became a bit tiresome after a couple of nights.
However these issues were trivial compared to everything else the house offers. Comfortable, spacious, stylish and so well equipped with all you might need for a perfect family holiday.
The house Caretakers Emma and Mike were fantastic. So helpful and accessible without ever being obtrusive lovely lovely people.
Thank you James and Tamsin La Tuiliere lived up to all the expectations I had for celebrating my 50th birthday with all the family and so much more. We made some fantastic memories we will treasure for many years to come.
A great spacious property, ideal for families
I stayed at the wonderful property with my three daughters, son in laws and 8 grandchildren who ranged in ages from 4 - 19. Plenty of room and lots to do with snooker table, table tennis, table football, badminton and of course the large swimming pool and smaller pool. Caretakers Emma and Mike brilliant .
Delighted you had a wonderful holiday. Thank you for the great feedback and for booking again next year.We look forward to welcoming you back at La Tuiliere in 2017.
