UTTERLY FABULOUS

5 of 5
Can't begin to describe how wonderful this house is. It's like a home from home and everything is immaculate. The owners have gone to great deal of effort to ensure their guests are made welcome and want for nothing. Toiletries in every bathroom, slippers for guests, hairdryers and a welcome pack. Instructions for all the kitchen equipment and a folder packed full of info on the house and the area. Just fab, fab, fab !!

Ideal house for a large family occasion. Games room for children with ranges of activities. Self-contained garden safe for small children. Clean and well appointed home. Dogs permitted which was a bonus. Straight forward booking and admin. Would recommend highly.
