"We had a wonderful time - weather was great, kids went crabbing on the jetty, we had a great day on the beach, but as we were sailing on the Tuesday, I slipped on the seaweed and broke my ankle and had to come home! But we had a great couple of days and managed to do all the best stuff before then. The house was really family friendly and we lived in the kitchen and garden. The kids enjoyed their independence by scootering into Emsworth to do crabbing and getting bread from the bakery. A really lovely holiday house. We all want to go back! "
Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans un lieu calme, reposant, avec une vue magnifique. Le gîte est très bien équipé, notamment pour l'accueil des jeunes enfants. Il est très bien entretenu. A recommander.
