Guestbook comments from the manager

Beautiful House, lovely large rooms and perfect for large groups. It is a very sociable house with gorgeous views and we enjoyed our stay very much. The bed linen and towels provided were of a lovely quality. Great base for exploring the surrounding area. It is within walking distance into town, although could be a problem for some as it is quite an hilly area. There are a couple of small items that needed a bit of TLC but this did not affect the enjoyment of our holiday.
