  • Very well stocked kitchen

    Very well stocked kitchen. Nice dining area and secluded locations. Really enjoyed the movie selection. Would recommend instructions posted somewhere on how the DVD player works, took us a while to figure it out.

  • Great cosy place, with everything you need

    Great cosy place, with everything you need. Could have done with more hanging areas for wet clothing. Central to everything,great location. Would be good to have wifi but all good otherwise.
