Just disappointed that log burner not able to be used at the moment as they are waiting for the flue to be replaced. Was abl to heat most of the rooms with the electric fires but not the bathroom and hard to dry towels etc.

Welcome pack upon arrival, wine, cheese, bread, butter, milk tea and coffee fruit etc. Nice touch to enable us to have a bite to eat and drink whilst unpacking. Decoration beautiful, well presented, owner on the end of the telephone if needed, Children and dogs had a great time on beach which is a 5-10 minute walk away. So refreshing to be able to take dogs and have a small garden they can play in and be safe. Lovely decked area to sit out on and watch the sunrise and sunset.
