What is it about the place?
gentle pace of life? The feeling of being at one with nature, with
sheep in the fields, buzzards in the sky, and herons on the stream
running through the orchard? The way children can just go out to
play, on the rafts? The ease of walking the dog, with all that
space around? The miniature railway, the famous 'Ratty', whose steam
engines trundle through the farmland? Maybe just the stunning scenery?
Whatever it is it's a very real feeling, of peace and tranquillity providing the perfect place to relax on holiday.
