Verified reviewexcellent

The Orchard House was very neat and clean. The kitchen was fully equipped to suit our needs. Wood was supplied for the huge fireplace which came to good use on the cold evenings. The fact that we could take our dogs with was an added bonus. We had a great stay and will definitely return soon.
