The house was well maintained throughout Everything you would need for a comfortable family holiday .It was immaculate and had little touches e.g. liquid soap in bathrooms, A small supply of tea, coffee ,sugar and washing liquid and some dishwasher tablets to get you started for the week. The houses are situated in a lovely quiet area with well maintained grounds and electric gates for extra security. Would re-visit this area again.
