The property was just as described and had everything we needed for our holiday.

5 of 5
The property was fantastic and was an ideal base for our family holiday to Legoland. It has everything you could need and more and is ideally located to get away from it all. We all loved the swimming pool and Laurie and her family couldn't done enough to make sure our holiday was a pleasurable experience. I would highly recommend this property as it ticked every box I was looking for. We already plan to visit again soon in the not to distant future. Well worth a 5 star rating
