The property was excellent in so many ways. The kitchen and utility room were possibly the best equipped we have ever found....we never ran out of mugs, glasses, plates etc Two dish washers, two washing machines...brilliant! For us, the slightly isolated rural location was a definite bonus. We enjoyed being able to explore the local area without haRead moreving to drive anywhere...but also visited the coast and a local children's farm. The grounds were lovely and enabled us to observe birds and rabbits. Hide
