The bungalow is located next to the Donkey Sanctuary and we found it to be a good central spot to get to the places in we wanted to visit. We also appreciated the text Jacqui sent to check we had everything we needed. We had a wonderful, relaxing holiday and would highly recommend this great accommodation.

We wanted to wait until the very last minute to cancel in case we were able to go especially with cancellation policy not allowing for any refund. He was very understanding and suggested that if we cancelled on the Friday, he would re-advertise the property and if successful he would transfer the proceeds back to us. If not successful we could still make use of the property if our circumstances changed. As soon as we cancelled, the deposit and service fee were refunded. On the Sunday Eric informed me that he had been able to take a booking for the last 4 days and as such would make a partial refund of around 65%. As it happened we couldn't make any of the week at all and so this was the ideal outcome. Eric was well within his rights not to do any of this but his compassionate actions gave us one less thing to worry about during a very difficult time for me and my family. Thank you.
