Dawn was very welcoming and did everything that she could for us during our stay. We were very satisfied with our stay and would rent again.

Train station and bus stop easily accessible Vicky has done an amazing job with the windmill she must be very proud of it.

The apartment is at the top of a large, elegant house; access is through the house, up 27 steps (not for the faint-hearted or infirm!). Any questions we had before and during our stay were answered and sorted very efficiently. The apartment was clean, and perfectly fine for 6 adults. There are three large bedrooms, each with a double bed. However a futon was provided as we have two teenagers, so they did not have to share a bed! The furnishing is sparse but adequate. Sitting 6 round the table to eat (4 on stools) is interesting. We did quite a lot of cooking and a couple of larger pans and a mixing bowl or two would be helpful. I imagine we are unusual as we tend to eat a family meal every evening in the accommodation. There is only one bathroom, and the toilet is in there, but plenty of hot water for showers and bath. the hot water takes a long time to reach the kitchen, and the drains are slow. Bins for rubbish and recycling are at the back of the house, access via the garden.
