The wood burner was lovely, we have one at home and the dog was in heaven lying in front of ‘his’ blazing fire. The location within the grounds of Ellingham Hall was wonderful, so quiet and lots of different walks for us and the dog to explore – and there are ‘real’ neighbours, so it felt very much like a home from home.
