It's easily the best equipped holiday accommodation we've ever stayed in. It's in a nice, quiet area and you can easily forget there's anyone else around. The only thing that stops it getting 5 stars is that the living area smelled of dog. But if you're a dog owner I guess it's ideal! Thank you for a peaceful week.
