Didn't need to use the car again until we went home. Tuppence loved it!! Thanks Suzanne

The towels and sheets were of exceptional quality and we had every facility to hand. Sadly we could only stay for two nights but we will certainly recommend our friends, and we will return. Thanks go to Tim and Tara for everything including the goodies on our arrival. Parking only proved difficult on one occasion.
