House well equipped and warm and cosy as it was a bit cold when we were there. Could do with some kind of boot room as nowhere to put dirty wet boots and coats or clean them but overall excellent house.

The home fitted our needs perfectly with three bedrooms and two bathrooms as well as a well equipped kitchen and a large lounge looking out on the beautiful garden. We were able to walk to the village that has good shops and restaurants. Everything was very clean and well decorated.
