This was an ideal location for a family get together, with lovely scenery & walking opportunities. The bedrooms were comfortable. The lounge was large enough to sit us all comfortably.

The photos on the website looked fantastic and when we got there it was even better! Shortly after we arrived the owner rang us with helpful information about the property and the area ie things to do / where to eat etc. which was thoughtful. They also left a wonderful basket of provisions for us!. We had read the reviews before we arrived, so knewRead more the only criticism was that people could not rebook as always fully booked - so we rebooked for next year whilst we were still there! Simply perfect! Hide
