The house was perfect for us, well equipped kitchen, comfortable sitting room and bedrooms, and the large bathroom had a super powerful shower. There was plenty of wardrobe space so much so that we left 2 coats behind when we left! Chris the owner couldn't have been more helpful and was kind enough to pack them up and send them on to us. Very many thanks, we definitely recommend this property.
