  • Stayed there from 13th to 16th July

    Stayed there from 13th to 16th July. This property did not disappoint. Lovely place. The house was clean, very well equipped and instructions on arrival were clear and concise. We had no issues whatsoever. Great for kids. Would definitely recommend this place to use as a base for the surrounding areas. 5 stars from us.

  • The property was lovely, we really enjoyed our stay here

    The property was lovely, we really enjoyed our stay here. The house was very cosy and the fire was fantastic to have, especially as our trip was a winter getaway! It had all the kitchen amenities we needed and the house generally was nice and tidy. Would definitely recommend staying here.

  • We were unhappy at not being informed about need to turn on...

    We were unhappy at not being informed about need to turn on hot water when arriving. We feel this could be done prior to arrival or emailed to us as these instructions were not obvious for us and left us with no hot water when required. Otherwise in all other respects it was a comfortable house

    Owner/manager responds:

    Such a shame you didn't notify us until your departure that you didn't know younneeded to turn on the hot water. We have a notice at the front door and a guests information book with all the necessary information for ensuring our guests know where everything is on their arrival. We found in the past that emailing the information about our holiday home was quite often left behind and required a phone call to get settled in on arrival. We have put an additional notice in the kitchen now.
