The apartment is the perfect size for us as a couple, has all we need, and is lovely and clean. John and Kate are very friendly and helpful, and prompt with any queries. Already pencilled in for next year.

The cottage is beautifully presented with owners, Julia and David, next door to ensure that everything runs smoothly- much better than absent, unknown owners.
