Directions and access to the property was easy and accurate. On opening the front door we were greeted with a warm cosy atmosphere, the smell of furniture polish, and the added bonus of the 2 Christmas trees having their lights on ready for our arrival. What a perfect place it was - large, homely and well equipped. We all loved it there and didn't want to leave. We all had our own rooms when we wanted quiet time, and never a wait for a bathroom as with 2 showers, 2 baths and 4 toilets, plenty to go round. The communal space was fab and we thoroughly enjoyed big family sit togethers for all meals and party games. Plenty of comfy seating to go round too. We did all our own cooking and the kitchen was super equipped for all our needs there. Fabulous location for walks to beaches and coastal paths. We would not hesitate to book this property in the future.
