It's well equipped and has a very nice feel to it. It is quite bijou but we thought the very high standard compensated for this very well (we thought it unlikely you'd get anything significantly bigger for the same price that was anywhere near as nice). The setting is very peaceful and quiet with a nice and quite large garden for children to play in. We very much enjoyed our stay and thought the price was very good value for the time of year we visited (August).
