Clean, perfectly located little apartment with all you could need!

5 of 5
We were so pleased with our booking of this place. The location is ideal, right in the town centre. It was lovely and clean and had all you could need for a self catering holiday. Extra little touches, like board games to play or relevant books on the bookshelf, made it feel very homely. The owners were incredibly helpful and even dropped off a high chair, travel cot and baby bath for us to use with our 10 month old. Which was such a big help! The welcome pack and local attractions information were also really useful. We'd definitely stay here again and have already recommended to friends and family.
