“The welcome pack was second to ...”The welcome pack was second to none. It was brilliant to arrive to discover a basket with bread, eggs, Welsh Cakes and even milk in the fridge. Also the instructions for the mechanics of the house were magnificent. I would even suggest that you make this level of attention to detail compulsory with your property owners. Thank you Alison, John, Tom and Kate for the most wonderful base, from which to enjoy our holiday.
