Directions as how to find property very good. Welcomed on arrival by very friendly owner. Wittersham Manor Barn and setting is absolutely fabulous, and the photos, although accurate do not do it justice to the size of the rooms, nor the beautiful surrondings. The property was well equipped and we had a lovely holiday. Thanks to all involved. - BM United Kingdom
