It looks bijou but is surprisingly spacious and very well equipped. Nice little touches on arrival with basic necessities such as tea, coffee, cupboard essentials and even a chocolate cake. It is clean and comfortable and gave us a good base from which to walk in what was an unseasonably warm weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Viola and Michael Hunt.
