  • The property was immaculate, well cared for and presented

    The property was immaculate, well cared for and presented. The kitchen was well stocked down to a loaf of bread, bottle of milk and home baking, provided on arrival. Those little touches were much appreciated and enjoyed. The heat pumps in the bedroom and main room made the house cosy and warm, and homely, whilst it rained during our visit (which we did not mind). The gardens provided a fabulous setting, with surrounding countryside. Location was easy to find and close to town.
