  • Sunny, warm property with everything you need for a short stay

    Sunny, warm property with everything you need for a short stay. Also perfect location for walking into town. The only improvement would be a spring clean as the outdoor furniture was quite dirty and needed to be cleaned before use. Would definitely book the property again as ideal for families and small dogs.

    The bench top oven does not work which caused a bit of bother due to bringing our own food and not being able to cook it. And when turning the stove top on both elements go no matter what which was slightly dangerous. The fireplace was VERY smokey when lit and not very user friendly. The house was very hard to keep warm, although the set up and over all feel was lovely.
