Clean and modern annexe

5 of 5
Very friendly owners. Will do anything for you. Property was clean, modern, and has everything you would need. They have supplied toiletries, etc. Loved it. Has a wonderful park nearby but no garden area for dogs. Would have been difficult if you had rainy weather, with dogs.
