Spacious, detached, privately owned and carefully maintained 4 bedroom house in Dunkerron Woods. One of 26 houses in the development, this is probably the quietest house in the park as it is situated at the end of a quiet cul de sac of only 6 houses.

It is a lovely walk (about 10 minutes) and you can swim from the shore (it is not a sandy beach, rather a little stretch along the shoreline).
The maximum this house will accommodate is 8 persons, however we can provide one cot and one highchair for one infant only.
Sleeps 8 with ease, 4 large bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (1 with bath and all with shower), separate utility room with washing machine and dryer. Very well kitted out with no expense spared on maintenance.
