it was beautiful, so spacious, plenty of room for all my family.very well equipped, everything we needed.The only thing we felt was that it was a bit chill downstairs. Upstairs the heaters in the bedroom could be controlled, but the underfloor heating downstairs in such a big space was not very effective.
