Ideally situated to many local attractions but our main reason for visiting was to see relatives. They all live within 4m so this was perfect. The owner Suzanne, has thought of everything! You could literally unpack and relax. Owners information folder was so helpful! Will definitely visit again and again! Perfect for us as a family with the dog. See you again soon, thank you Suzanne

Anneth Lowan is very well presented and luxurious and every need is catered for. I would not hesitate to stay here again and have already recommended it. The extra touches provided by Katrina and Arthur make the stay even more magical.
