We found it to be much bigger than we anticipated, very homely, very tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and the views from the sun room and garden are amazing. It felt more like we were staying at a friends house than a rental property. It is definitely a bit off the beaten track but you would not get the views and tranquillity if it were not. A car is a must. Would definitely recommend.
