Very well equipped and more glasses than most pubs have. Only slight downside is that en suite was not in vogue when the property was built. There are however enough bathrooms to allocate one to each bedroom, so only a very minor problem. It is definitely in a much better condition that all other placed that I have stayed in and it is obvious that it is also the home of the owners. It was very cold when we were there, but the heating system was up to it. The Hidaway bar and restaurant is a 5 minute walk from the back gate and is open for breakfast. So no need to do too much cooking. We all enjoyed ourselves, and have happy memories of Grandads 70th Birtday treat for the family.

Location is perfect near the old village and esplanade and Sue has it fully equipped with easy instructions on arrival/departure; there was even a small carton of milk in the fridge along with tea and biscuits and other welcoming stuff. The wifi was very fast for mainland let alone being on the island. I was thoroughly impressed and pleased with everything as there wasn't much details left unattended; Will definitely repeat if available next time and would give more stars if I could. Many thanks and much appreciated.

The house was extremely spacious and as we walked in we pleasantly surprised by this and the fantastic decor and furniture throughout the house. There were plenty of beds and they were incredibly comfortable and well looked after. We found that the facilities matched our needs and we could cook a few meals and enjoy our time with a wide selection of games, pool, table tennis and films. On top of this it is situated in an ideal location that was close to the beach and any amenities required. Even the little details were catered for with coffee, milk and tea provided - who doesn't love a warm cup of tea? We had a brilliant experience and would recommend this to anyone. Bring on 2017!
