A fantastic location, homely accommodation and a wonderful owner!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very helpful and answered all of our queries, which is really saying something because we had a lot! She provided us with clear instructions and directions on how to reach the property and how to gain entry.

The property was clean and cosy. There were 13 of us and the place was definitely large enough to fit us in and provide for us. A few of us even got lost when walking around. The rooms were large and nicely set out. The two kitchens were filled with cutlery and appliances. The bathrooms were clean and well presented.

All in all, I would definitely recommend this place to all. The property was perfect for our needs, as we were a large group, and the owner was a pleasure to deal with.
