Stunning property and location

5 of 5
A lovely homely property, very comfortable and a really well equipped kitchen ideal for some proper home cooking. And also lovely to be able to sit around a proper dining table in comfort. Views were stunning and bedrooms and bathrooms were all excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to come back.
