A superb property that was perfect for the whole family.

  • 5 of 5

The family, ranging from 6 year old twin boys to 80 year old grandad, were all well catered for at Lakeview. The accommodation was absolutely spotless with all bedding and towels smelling lovely!! The view was amazing, despite the weather, and there was plenty to do in the local area. We would have no problem in recommending this property to anyone! Pamela was very welcoming and on hand if required.
