Also spacious and comfortable. In a very quiet location, a sort of 'end of the world' (the road ends and the footpath leading to the hills starts right in front of the house). Also the garden was very nice with lots of hidden corners to enjoy the peace that is around - and our private part of the gardnen was much appreciated by our dog! Our host Ian was very friendly and helpful, and the information provided about nearby places to visit we found useful. Really we couldn't ask for more for our perfect holidays. Thank you!

Accommodation was fantastic, clean, modern and cosy. Large garden at the back with woodland area was a bonus. Kids loved exploring and finding the little surprises dotted around. Wish we had booked to stay longer. Hopefully we will return sooner rather than later. Would highly recommend.

The house was spotless and it had everything you could possibly need. We would definitely stay again as we thoroughly enjoyed it. Highly recommend.
