Lovely well equipped property

  • 4 of 5

Lovely well equipped property which suited our 3 generational family plus dog very well in a very peaceful location. We enjoyed walking to Lee Bay and enjoyed the tea room and pizza evening.

Some observations - shower room needs refurbishment, need to advise visitors of very narrow lane with limited passing places, some information about recycling would be useful

Perfect for large families

  • 3 of 5

Comfortable, well equipped farmhouse in a beautiful location. The farmhouse provided our family with all we needed, good sized communal areas and comfortable bedrooms. The heated floor was amazing and very much appreciated after a long day exploring the many walking routes surrounding the property. Our only wish was that a little more TLC had been paid to the garden, with adequate garden furniture provided so that we could've sat out and enjoyed the beautiful surroundings whilst the children played. As it was, there were some areas that need clearly cordoning off before it is safe for children e.g. the pile of glass. Very good value for money.
