Impressive property well maintained. Those little extra touch’s were appreciated and well thought about. Picnic baskets, tents, umbrellas, play station, books the list goes on and on. Highly recommended will be booking again

A great family holiday

5 of 5
8 of us, made up of three generations, thoroughly enjoyed our 'house party' at Littlestairs. The house is in a beautiful location and very tastefully furnished, the beds comfortable, and lovely to have so many bathrooms. The garden is private, and ideal for both children and adults. Only criticism: it would have been nice to have two hand towels, not just one; the cutlery got used up quite quickly, with 8 people, and the dishwasher is wobbly!
