  • We stayed here for three nights, with three adults and one dog

    We stayed here for three nights, with three adults and one dog. The apartment is beautifully furnished and comfortable, with a lovely bathroom and plenty of storage. The outdoor area is fully fenced with a nice grass area and great bbq set up. Dog friendly doesn't quite cover it, the owners have gone out of their way with so many little touches to ensure your pooch is pampered, including treats, maps and advice for where you can walk your dog, and much more. Highly recommended.

    Super pet friendly had filled water bowls inside and out when we arrived , dog treats, toys and dog bed. Fully fenced private area under the main house, not that you would know anyone was there. Apartment had all amenities we needed and the shower pressure was amazing!

    This was our second stay here, we loved it so much the first time, we came back! It’s great to have somewhere so clean, comfortable and well-located where we can take our dogs away on holiday with us too. The apartment is well equipped and the enclosed garden is safe for the dogs, with a great view. Alex is friendly and helpful without being intrusive. With easy access to the lake and lots of great dog walks nearby, we all had a great time, it’s like a home away from home!

    My husband and I and our elderly dog Molly had a wonderful 5 day break at this apartment. It had a lovely enclosed garden perfect for Molly and for us to sit outside reading books and sipping wine at sunset. The apartment itself was very well set up with lots special touches! Bed was very comfortable and great shower! Would love to visit again..
