Its ideal if you want to park the car up and forget it for a day or two. Would visit again.

Property was clean and tidy. The owner's representative is extremely helpful and responded promptly to any queries. As noted in other reviews, there is no driveway or allocated parking but we did not experience any difficulty during our week's stay. Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable stay.
