The plus points other than above, you get met by Ruth and receive a full hand over of the property and keys for the start of your stay, most informative and on call for any help or emergencies should they arise. The negative points were the issues with the neighbour and his parking, as you need to park your car in between the property boundary lines, of which he seems to have a problem with, when I found that he had reversed his car over the boundary and up to the front of mine (damaging the paint work), you could not even get a credit card into the gap between his rear and my front bumper, the bloke is a total ####? Other than the parking issues, this property comes highly recommended by my family and I, we will be looking to return again in 2017.

They are a genuinely lovely couple who want nothing more than to share their property and a place that they love and make sure that their guests have a happy and memorable time. We are very grateful and can't wait to see visit in August 2017.
