Large and spacious to fit all of us in, lovely roaring fire, large kitchen area and outdoor area, the kids enjoyed the extensive garden and trampoline - it proved perfect for the Easter Egg hunt! We were made very welcome again.

The place is very nicely furnished and has everything you may need (fully equipped kitchen, large living room with TV, DVD player and a lot of board games for the children to play). There is also ample space to enjoy outdoors with a lovely sitting area in front of the property. The landlady was very lovely and welcoming, even provided us with a jar of homemade jam which for some reason we couldn't find in the supermarket. All in all a lovely place to stay if you enjoy peace and quiet and countryside.
