March 2017 "We had a great time thank you.
Peony was perfect, not just lovely to look at but also having everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. We loved the fact that we did not use the car all weekend. Beautiful countryside and relaxing walks. The pub did an amazing Sunday lunch to finish off our stay. We will most certainly come again!"
