Fantastic

Maison Poppie is really well presented in a lovely quiet location. Downstairs has plenty of room, a comfortable living area and the bedrooms are spacious too, the standard is excellent. We were greeted by Kim and Phil who are so friendly and helpful, and also provided us with some much appreciated culinary treats on arrival. The setting is just great, very nice area in front of the house to sit out in the sun and perhaps a wave from the also friendly neighbours! It’s an easy drive to the supermarket or cafe, restaurant, some lovely places around to visit for a day out. All in all we loved it and would definitely revisit.
