House has everything you need in it, very spacious, having the pool and being able to swim outdoors everyday in March was a bonus.
Location is central to such a lot of places. A must is a visit to Longleat safari park (they have kennels where you can leave the dogs).
If you want a 5* holiday this is the place to be at.
