This was a surprise gift of a few days away for my daughters/son in law after their wedding. They loved it! Very inviting when they arrived, the log burner had been lit and they allowed us to decorate with banners and balloons etc, they even hung some beautiful lights for them too. Good quality fittings, squeaky clean and Wendy was so lovely and helpful, It feels like we've made a new friend. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lovely holiday home. Thankyou so much, If you want a beautiful, private, quality get away...this is the one!
