El entorno de Wilderhope manor es inmejorable y poder alojarse en un edificio del 1600 es algo mágico. Aunque el primer día se echa de menos la señal del teléfono, wifi y TV, la verdad es que para familias con niños, como es mi caso, es de lo mejor que se puede encontrar. La cocina para los residentes me pareció un poco pequeña. El espacio del frigo muy escaso y los fuegos para cocinar lentos hasta aburrirse, pero desde luego, para respirar paz y encontra relaX volvería sin duda.
