The apartment was exactly what i needed and a true home from home. A lovely welcome pack greeted myself which also included treats for my dog. Would definately recommend for anyone planning to go to this area for a few days

An amazing place with wonderfully comfortable beds, luxurious bathrooms and views to die for! The work that has been carried out by Barry and his team have transformed this house into a glorious place to stay. We spent a lot of time in the conservatory as the views are panoramic,peaceful and beautiful. We would love to come and stay again!
