The owners really have catered for everyone!
The property has 11 bedrooms in total and can sleep up to 24 guests comfortably. 10 of the bedrooms have their own en suite, whilst on the ground floor of the property there is a suite comprising two bedrooms which are connected and share an en suite/disabled toilet. There is a small lounge and bar area, a separate games lounge, and a stunning dining room which can comfortably seat all of your guests. With the original chef's kitchen still in situ there is nothing more you could possibly need to cater for everyone during your stay, well except maybe the chef themselves!

Forest House is in an ideal location for groups of keen walkers, cyclists, golfers, or just general lovers of the great outdoors to take in the stunning scenery and local attractions.
