The GMCH team provides a personalized high quality service with much attention to detail. This includes the housekeeping, gardens, restaurants, spa and all around services of the country estate. This was my most enjoyed holiday stay ever. Well done GMCH team!

I was last at Granny Mouse around 3 years ago, and this stay was even better than I remembered. All of the staff are so friendly and helpful. The champagne upon arrival, the incredible food, the fireplace in our room, the Spa, dinner in the wine cellar, delicious breakfast.
