Stephanie had some scones awaiting our arrival and had put some Easter eggs in the grounds for the kids to find. The games room was an added bonus that we were not expecting. Everyone was extremely friendly. The house was very comfy with plenty of room for our extended family and the wifi quality was good. The surrounding countryside is spectacular and my wife and I enjoyed kayaking around to Garnish Island on one of the days. Hope to go back again some time.
