    The property was in a great location 3-4 muninutes walk to the square. It was very clean and tidy.and was a great propery for 2 couples as each bedroom had it own bathroom.

    The property is delightful, clean and well presented with a bedroom at each end of the house, the location is absolutely perfect for walking to the main square. It was lovely to have provisions left for us in the way of bread, milk, eggs and the usual tea & coffee. The downside for us was that the lighting is very dim throughout and there is almost no sound insulation so almost every noise is heard across the house, but don't let that put you off staying, it's quite charming.

    Thank you glad you enjoyed your stay. We agree the lighting is on the dim side due to the design of the recessed lighting to suit Strawhouse design. We will consider including putting some additional lighting in the kitchen area.

  • Lovely warm house with great atmosphere

    Lovely warm house with great atmosphere. Covered veranda was a bonus. Could do with a few more basic supplies, in particular - cooking oil, salt and pepper and a cheese grater. Appreciated the breakfast supplies. Good location close to the square.

    Thank you and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. I am sorry you did not find the salt and pepper and grater as there were all in the kitchen cupboard.
