  • The property, well was stunning to be honest, Patton Mill has a nice feel about it, the stay was fantastic, nice remote location even went for a long walk in the fields at the back of the garden, we loved it. We were actually trying to put the money together to see if we can buy it we loved it that much. Sat nav was no problem took us straight there. We didn't want to leave, I wished we could have booked it for longer, but maybe another time. Thanks for the stay was lovely, hopefully one day in the future we'll get to return and thanks for the booking the house wifi, sky tv, heating and water and info pack, everything was great
