We have never been so well looked after. The delightful house has everything you could wish for, and was completely stocked on arrival.Zain dropped off fresh bread and English newspapers one day, yet another surprise gift. Sadly the weather was very strange, a belt of low cloud enveloping the house like a Scotch mist, with corresponding temperatures, hence the loss of one star above. Travel 5 minutes East and you are back in usual sunshine. Tip; bring a sweater and light jacket, the is a wind blowing from the Atlantic. We had some pleasant evenings in front of the log fire.The area is lovely, everything needed close by, and still largely unspoilt. Very many thanks, and congratulations Zain.
