We had 4 adults and 5 children stay and loved it. Plenty of room, very clean and comfortable and had everything we could need. The lawn on the side of the house is almost soccer pitch size, so if kids are coming make sure you bring a ball. Really great accomodation.

Stunning house with huge rooms!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for one night and absolutely loved it. The house is spacious and the rooms are very big with comfortable beds. We were provided groceries for breakfast and a bottle of local red wine. Wished we could have stayed longer here.
