What can I say it exceeding our expectations. Joy sent us lots of information before we arrived on the area and how everything worked. The house was very homely, there was a lovely Christmas tree and lights around the house, the children loved it. From the minute we entered the house to be greeted by the warmth of the aga in the kitchen, the log burner in the lounge, comfortable beds and clean bathrooms it was home from home. We hadn't all got together at Christmas for a long time and the house was perfect. We didn't leave it for three days! Afternoons relaxing in the lounge and evenings all sat in the kitchen around the table just chatting and eating. Church bells, a lovely village pub on your door step. Had an incident where we locked ourselves out but Joy's neighbours were wonderful and had us back in the house within minutes - the benefits of village life. Would recommend The Garden House and Joy to anyone. Would definitely stay there again.
