A Lovely Setting for a Family Holiday
We had a fabulous time staying here during the Christmas holidays. This was not our first time staying here, and we enjoyed returning. The setting is relaxing and comfortable, and the views are amazing. I would recommend this house to anyone. The owners are very friendly, and they made us very welcome.
Beautiful house with plenty of lovely rooms for 7 adults to hide away in. Fab welcoming pack!
