Beautiful property, tranquil surroundings, friendly owners, even the animals were welcoming

  • 5 of 5

This property is well worth a visit, you will not be disappointed, tranquil surroundings and within easy reach of the forest and lovely friendly villages. We visited in January and were not disappointed. The property has everything you could possibly need, owners are very friendly and don't forget to ask about fresh eggs which taste amazing not like in the shops, I had forgotten what really fresh eggs taste like, brought some home with me. Have already recommended this holiday let and look forward to going back again so many more villages to see and don't forget the beaches. Lots of pubs and restaurants to eat in nearby to suit all pockets.
