Perfect for families, absolutely everything is catered for, far more than you usually find in similar self catering accommodation. A great amount of thought for guests comfort obviously put in by the owners and arriving to a welcome pack of tea/coffee etc and birthday cards for our boys on arrival were very welcome additions. Will stay here again.
