House views are magnificent, loved it. Large enough for our combined family and easy access to train station . Well furnished with exception of main carpet, needs replaced. Initially only one towel per person and duvets too heavy for summer months.
Overall, house was perfect though certainly not handicap accessible for wheelchairs.
Would certainly recommend for a large family holiday. Easy visits to most attractions.
