  • This was the perfect property for our latest holiday away

    This was the perfect property for our latest holiday away. We had 3 families which included 5 girls between the ages of 4-6 and the house was the perfect size for us. It had everything we needed and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would book again!

  • Really enjoyed the house and the setting

    Really enjoyed the house and the setting. Not Richards fault, but the weather did not let us enjoy the wonderful outdoor area. We were a large group and the house coped well with the numbers. Will recommend to anyone.

  • Nice house big enough for us two families staying during bad weather

    Nice house big enough for us two families staying during bad weather. We didn’t use the bbq however the cooking facilities were enough for us to spend good time here while not much outside activities to do. There were legos and board games for kids to play as well. Recommend to upgrade the TV to smart TV so can reflect the movies from iPhone.
