These last two bedrooms share a stylish bathroom with a roll-top bath and separate shower. The conservatory leads out to the spacious garden which looks out over the surrounding pastures and hills. Featuring a raised water feature, outdoor furniture, BBQ and a summerhouse with a bar (guests are welcome to bring their own beverages), this is a delightful space for unwinding in.

Lovely spacious property for a large family, all the equipment etc you could need. The village it is in was lovely and quiet and we found it very easy to visit various places around the area including the beach.

We really enjoyed this lovely family sized home which was a great base for us. It is well equipped and maintained in a great setting, with a fair amount to do both locally and further afield. Recommended.

A very pleasant house in a quiet attractive village, perhaps a little too far from the coast if you have beach loving children. The facilities are very good and the beds were outstandingly comfy.. The village has a good pub but no shop, the nearest one being just over 2 miles away.
