I was nervous about booking direct with the owner, but Alex and Chris were extremely understanding and helpful. The house was beautiful, spacious, warm and really well equipped. The only thing we couldn't find was anything to make proper coffee in - there were several tea pots so I guess Alex and Chris must prefer tea! The hot tub and pool were the height of luxury, and were clean and well kept. We would love to return.
