This was one of the most relaxing holidays we have had. Knighton Gorges is full of mystery and the history is facinating, but it also gives you the peace and quiet you need. It was one of the cleanest rental properties we have stayed in. It was spacious and had every facility you could want. The children adored the sheep and freedom of such a huge garden. A five star property and five star holiday. I really think there should be more photos of the property on your website, both inside and out, as it doesn't truly reflect the stunning property that it is. Overall Rating: 5 Stars
