The house was a pleasure to stay in, with large and spacious bedrooms, so plenty of space for our belongings. We did not have a car but everything was within walking distance and there was plenty to do. All round a very enjoyable stay and I would highly recommend it to friends and family

The house was very well equipped and had everything we needed. The outdoor space is really well and the layout of the house. Would definitely stay at the house again.
