We had hot weather, every day was beautiful. It was perfect for our short stay. 2 adults and 1 child. Susan was lovely and very helpful. We arrived late and she checked we had everything we needed to get us through and brought over milk for us. The property is clean and well kept. The extensive semi enclosed garden was fairly private, and great for us during the day with our son in his little paddling pool, and for us to sit out in the evenings having BBQ's. We enjoyed it very much.

The garden is large and fully dog and child proof. For dog owners the ground floor is tiled and nice and cool during the day (even when the sun shines!). We had a great 10 days - helped by the weather!
