This home was PERFECT! I could not be happier with our stay. We have a large family and everyone had a bed, plenty of bathrooms and very well maintained! We would absolutely go back and recommend to anyone we know!

Lovely house with great facilities

  • 4 of 5

Lovely house with plenty room and the hot tub really makes it. Gas BBQ is a bonus too. Only downside was a doggy smell from the cushions and beanbag in the living room. Would recommend it though.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We appreciate our guests comments as this is helpful for us to attend to any issues that arise. I am so sorry to hear about the cushions, which has now been dealt with. We can normally deal with matters like this straight away as we live in the village. Kind regards, Avril

Lovely property with thoughtful extras

  • 5 of 5

We went as a family group to celebrate my 50th birthday and had a great time. The hot tub was super but would have benefitted from being filled after the first night. We went skiing, which was really good. The log fire was great and there were lots of games, DVD, to keep you occupied, the kitchen had everyday supplies which was very handy. We would definitely go back. My one negative was the hot tub was an extra expense on top of the hire and I thought the price was quite steep.

This house is very cosy and homely! It’s in a nice quiet location and the walk into the town centre is a walkable distance. The hot tub is the perfect place to relax and slippers and robes are provided which adds to the experience
