Location was great and the area beautiful with lots of places to visit close by which we all loved. The house was very well equipped with plenty of toys for the kids and the trampoline and sandpit were great. Denise had thought of everything and there was a good stock of basic foodstuffs which helped with cooking. The only slight issue was the lack of an oven but we did have the outdoor grill which was good. We would definitely recommend this property and had a fantastic holiday.
