Everything we needed for our short stay, we would love to visit again for a longer holiday to explore the area more. The owners were very helpful, showing us around the house on arrival. A very tidy, clean and spacious accommodation and garage. Lovely private garden and our son was invited to use the larger family garden to kick his football around.
