Everything had been well thought out and no expense spared on the quality of the fittings. absolutely spotless! (bit of a worry with a 6 and 3 year old!) our hosts were very friendly and helpful and suggested some local attractions, there was plenty to keep us busy even in January. we learnt and enjoyed a lot! we were so impressed with the electric bed that we immediately ordered one when we got home!
