“We wanted to do something new together, and friends kept urging us to come and look at Windcliffe Manor as it was called then. As soon as we walked through the door we both knew it was where we should be. We looked at each other and said how enchanting it was, and that was the beginning of the creation of our Enchanted Manor,” the current owners said.
