Quiet location and owners that were happy to let us enjoy the property and garden with minimum fuss. October was a little cool but the owners provide logs to heat the wood burner making a warm cosy retreat. Excellent fish and chips available in the village on a Friday evening and a Sunday lunch should you want some traditional English food. Easy to get too from the port with some lovely quiet country roads and quaint villages.

Just rural enough to be peaceful, but not far from the local towns and restaurants. The property has been renovated to the highest standard, quality fittings used. Each bedroom having its own en-suite is a big advantage, and the log burner was very efficient. All in all, a great property. Not the cheapest, but worth every extra penny to enjoy luxury. Well done, Suzanne, for creating a stunning property.
