Lovely house in a great location.

5 of 5
Very nice, well equipped house with a good pool (which was warm with the heating). Stayed in April, weather wasn't great but plenty to do both in the house and in the surrounding area. Owners were very helpful. Highly recommended.

Great house, amazing views and beautiful region

5 of 5
Our party of 8 (2 families with young adult children) stayed in this lovely house over the Easter period. The house is very well equipped and has a great layout enabling us to be all together, or not, as required. The table-tennis and snooker were very popular. We enjoyed some great walks in the area, and just sitting outside or inside and taking in the fabulous view was a real treat. We liked the location of the house and the fact that it is not in one of the big tourist developments in the region. We would happily go back and thoroughly recommend this property.
