The property had everything you could need and the two woodburners made our winter break very cosy. The owners were extremely pleasant and helpful. Would definitely like to return in the future.

We stayed here in October and it was very clean, well furnished and warm. Great to have parking at the rear as you would struggle to park anywhere near, we have an estate car and managed to fit it into the space. Kitchen seemed very new with everything you could possible need to cook with. Nice terraced garden which I would imagine is lovely in the summer with areas to sit out. Living room had TV with DVD player, wide selection of DVDs. Loved this place and hope to return next year.
