  • Really roomy house and great for party of 10

    Really roomy house and great for party of 10. Facilities were great and had everything we needed for our weekend stay. Location is a little out of the town but we actually quite liked that it was secluded and a quiet area.

    Location was excellent, in a quiet spot but only 5 - 10 minute walk from town. Property is big with an excellent kitchen and living area. Bedroom layout is a little strange and no shower upstairs (only a bath) might not be suitable for some but worked for us.
